Reality Has It

Poem By Francis Duggan

For all of us a place where we first saw light of day
You may live there now or near to it or from it live far away
And though there yours may not be a well known face
Where you live today is now your home place
Home is where the heart is as some like to say
But reality has it in a different way
Though others may see it in ways differently
Home where i now live is home to me
And though from there i now do live far away
I do love Claraghatlea my first home though there i did not stay
In the green countryside just west of Millstreet Town
Where old Clara Mountain does ever look down
But i too love Koroit my new Hometown near the City of Warrnambool
Far south of where i was born and near to where i went to school.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

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
We do seem so different so different indeed.

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
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
