A Beautiful Place Old Killarney - Poem by Francis Duggan

'Tis surely an Earthly Utopia Killarney by the Pacific sea
In the sunlit park by saltwater the magpie lark calls out pee wee
Between Warrnambool and Port Fairy where Nature's beauty and peace reside
Where the oystercatchers can be heard piping above the din of the incoming tide
Each time I have been in Killarney I have felt sad from there on going away
Such a beautiful place for to live in and visit the sea every day
The clear coastal air unpolluted no factory anywhere near
On the coastal trees by saltwater the magpie's flute pleasant to hear
Long before the first Europeans came here in the shade of the coastal trees
The people of Australia's Dreamtime sung and danced their corroborees
Their spirits live on in Killarney though they have gone the ways of time
From Killarney the gem of Victoria that inspires song, story and rhyme
A beautiful place old Killarney such beautiful places are rare
I have been to some scenic places but with any it can compare.
