    Our Nephew Thomas

    Our nephew Thomas Duggan died at twenty three
    And he is one I'll never meet or see
    For he is one i never met before
    And he is at rest now forever more
    In distant Chicago in the U S A
    From where i live a half a World away
    His loss to his family time can only heal
    My late brother John's son he has one brother Neil
    I met his mother Nancy years ago
    A lovely lady this for her a tragic blow
    A devoted mother and to John a loving wife
    She has a heavy cross to bear in life
    He died in an accident in April of this year
    Such sad news one would rather not to hear. read more »

    Anchor to Windward

    Lakeboat mariners look forward to winter lay-up all summer long. The last voyage north from the steel mills in South Chicago begins before dawn with autumn winds and a cup of hot black coffee from the galley to ward off the chill. Guys congregate on the wind-swept decks, stomping feet and talking of this and that - wives and kids and days spent lounging before the new TV and drinking Budweiser.

    'See you next spring, Mick? ' read more »

    until it finds a tree

    A bird flies round until it finds a tree;
    its spirit doesn’t tell it one is better,
    and even when it lands it feels it’s free
    to try another, avian jet-setter. read more »
