Tower Hill Cemetery

Poem By Francis Duggan

All day and night the cars pass up and down
Between Warrnambool City and old Port Fairy Town
In the Moyne Shire on the Princes Highway
By the cemetery where the dead at Tower Hill lay
But traffic noise will not wake the forever gone
And life as usual in the World goes on
Perhaps some of Tower Hill's deceased drove on the Princes Highway years ago
Long before time it did become their foe
Many of Tower Hill's deceased attended primary school
In the Moyne Shire or the City of Warrnambool
In south west Victoria in the coastal countryside
Many of them lived their lives there and died
And in Tower Hill cemetery their remains lay
At peace forever by the Princes Highway.

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

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
