In The Warmth Of Early Summer

Poem By Francis Duggan

In the warmth of early Summer quite melodious and clear
The blackbird is singing to tell rain is near
If not tonight or tomorrow then later today
Nature's creatures are telling us rain's on the way
The weather is warm and humid close to thirty degrees
And so very calm only the faintest breeze
And a golden billed blackbird on a sunlit wattle tree
Is singing of rain in the park by the sea
The blackbird a renowned Nature's minstrel of the Spring
But when he sings in the heat of the Summer that's a different thing
In the warm Summer air he must sense the thunder rain
From listening to Nature such insights we do gain
The blackbird this morning has rain in his song
And when it comes to the weather he is never wrong.

Comments about In The Warmth Of Early Summer

The longing and thirst for the rain to shower that every creature feels in an extremely hot summer is expressed in a simple and lucid style. The poet relates the every single signal that one gets from nature about its next phase.
Amazing manifestations of nature and their predictions woven in a wonderfully penned poem. Enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.10 points.

Of human ignorance I am almost in despair
For racism is around me everywhere

Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,
