Rosy May

Poem By Francis Duggan

A plump and round faced woman in her early forties with shoulder length brown hair that's turning gray
The best loved person in the neighbourhood the happy go lucky Rosy May
Her husband is Bert they have three school going children two girls and a younger boy
A very happy family and the gift of life they do seem to enjoy.

A woman who finds it easy for to laugh and easy for to smile
And nothing false about her one untainted by guile
Down to earth and unconceited one who makes light of care
Financially not well off but in unmaterial things a millionaire.

Bert is such a lucky fellow to have such a lovely wife
A devoted and hard working family woman she never moans about life
Her marvellous gift of laughter cannot be bought or sold
'Tis something money cannot buy it is worth more than gold.

If everyone were only like her a happier World 'twould be
We would not have wars and terrorism and crimes against humanity
I cannot name a happier thing than a happy smiling face
Without such people life would seem boring and the World to live in a far worse place.

The darling of our neighbourhood is the lighthearted Rosa May
As happy as the dancing flowers on a breezy Summer's day
All of the money in the World could not buy what this one woman possess
Her marvellous gift of laughter her key to happiness.

Of human ignorance I am almost in despair
For racism is around me everywhere
But like they say sheer ignorance is bliss
Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

And that more rain is needed 'twould be fair to say

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.

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
