    Exploring the teeming world created by Francis Duggan through his poems is an experience in itself! Like Shakespeare, he is myriad minded! What a wealth of poetry, he has amassed for his contemporaries and later shall be bequeathed to the posterity! ! So rhyming and musical, they are indeed a treat to any lover of verse!

    Simply been awed by this treasure trove! !

    There are over 8000 peeks into the beautiful life and soul of Francis Duggan here. This, combined with all the combined works of Lyn Paul, Midnights Voice and Red O'Mara almost makes me happy about my insomnia: ^) I just love poetry and these are the Masters!

    Francis Duggan, widely written, is an amazing poet. His writings are full of life, and wisdom, and inspiration, and I enjoy them immensely.

    In Penshurst lives a poet
    Francis Duggan is his name
    he posts work on the internet
    as well as earning local fame
    .
    his birth place was in Ireland
    now he calls Australia home
    every day writes rhyming verse
    in lyrical traditional form
    .
    his themes range from bird and tree
    through to complex human nature
    soul sees both beauty and misery
    sympathises with living creature
    .
    he wrote a wonderful anthology
    called ‘Songs of Sherbrooke’
    exploring many aspects of life
    examines closely cranny and nook
    .
    if there’s something that you want
    to know about life down-under
    follow Frank’s heart, see through
    poet’s eyes world full of wonder

Some people carry their honour in a flag
And of their Nationality they brag
They feel superior and they differentiate
And against those who are different they discriminate.

So many people still judged by their race
For such there never ought to be a place
'A fair go' those untruthful words I do recall
There is no such a thing as a 'fair go for all'.

Though we live in a so called ...

What Happens To Be True

I only do say what happens to be true
A better Human World to live in begins with me and you
To the suffering of others we are too often blind
If each individual grew more compassionate and kind
The benefits that would accrue from this would be to everyone's gain
Hopes for a better and more compassionate Human World in the future one can only retain
If we all grew more caring for each other how great this would be
That in this we do have a choice with seems hard to disagree
A better and
