Francis Duggan


James has returned to his old Hometown and gray now is his once dark hair
To end his life journey from where it started he has been in the big World out there
He has seen some strange things in his travels and to tell has strange stories more than a few
And that truth can be stranger than fiction so happens to only be true.

He keeps us entertained at the Local Pub with his stories from far away
From the crowded cities of Asia like Shanghai, Delhi and Bombay
And of his adventures in Europe in big cities distant from home
Like London and Berlin and Moscow, Amsterdam Paris and Rome

He has been to Canada and the cold Artic the wild Northlands of the midnight sun
And been to the U S cities of New York, L A and the gambling capital Vegas where far more money is lost than won
And he has seen the mighty Amazon the jewel in South America's crown
Flowing through the great Rainforest distant from the nearest Town.

James has returned to his Hometown for to grow old there and die
Where his Mum and Dad now rest in peace he to one day will lie
Ín the Local Pub at the weekends when he has had a few beers
He tells us of his great adventures in his younger and his restless years

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
