Rather Lucky

Poem By Francis Duggan

I have been rather lucky in truth i can say
In the beautiful people i meet every day
People to help those doing it tough who go out of their way
Out of kindness without expecting any pay
One can say of their sort they are a rare breed
And of more like them the Human World is in need
Compassion and respect to others they show
The people who do have the bright inner glow
Though willing to help the financially down
Not looked up to as heroines or heroes of the town
For the welfare of others they genuinely does care
And the abundance of love in them they are willing to share
I feel rather privileged in truth i can say
Since a few of their sort i do meet every day.

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,

The Admirable Mo

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