Raining In Ireland Today

Poem By Francis Duggan

The World weather forecast has it raining in Ireland today
Nothing new or unusual in this one might say
The wind blowing a gale and the rain pouring down
And flooding in many a village and city and town
Ireland was never a dry country but it is beyond me to explain
Why in Climate Change there that there is more wind and rain
Since weather records have been kept than at anytime that has been
In a Country that is known for it's many shades of green
The winds of December blow with a cold chill
Across the flooded countryside from the fog covered hill
In Climate Change in wetter Countries heavier and longer spells of rain
And brown storm water flowing bank high in every river stream and drain
The World weather forecast has it raining in Ireland today
And nothing unusual in that one might say.

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

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

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,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
