Tower Hill

Poem By Francis Duggan

The countryside looks lush and greener after the recent rain
And the sheep and cattle with more grass to eat kilos in weight do gain
This place affected less by climate change or so 'twould seem that way
Through the undulating coastal landscape wafts the pleasant scent of hay
Tower Hill between Port Fairy and Warrnambool at it's finest to be seen
This beautiful coastal countryside has never looked so green
The goldfinches are singing on the gum and sheoak trees
And there is a certain freshness in the cool Pacific breeze
Tower Hill by the Pacific has inspired the bards to rhyme
This was a very ancient place long before the Dreamtime
Long before Tower Hill became a National Park in the shadow of the trees
The first Australian people danced their corroborees
It is a humbling feeling for to stand on sacred ground
In a place of an ancient history where beauty does abound.

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
