    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!

    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 ...

Ask One

Since I am one without a literary degree
Who is or is not a good writer ask one other than me
On who is or is not a good writer literary critics do have their say
And for their literary opinions receive a good pay
I only believe that you may be an amateur writer and for your writing never get paid
That you too are of value to the wordsmith trade
Since in writing as in all things for one to win big others have to lose
Though losing is a thing anyone does not choose
What has always been wi
