Francis Duggan Pink Poems

Like A Beautiful Pink Camellia

Like a beautiful pink camellia that's how you appear to me
That bloom in chilly August on it's dark green mother tree
So bright and fresh and pretty in the wintery wind and rain
That's how you've always looked to me and that's how you will remain.

Pink Eared Ducks

In flat coastal shallow lakes them sometimes you will see
Wild ducks not familiar to many and not familiar to me
With fleshy lobes under bill and pink around ears and overall brown mottled gray
Birds i know of and have seen but do not see every day

Galahs Or Pink And Graycockatoos

Galahs or pink and gray cockatoo
Live in large flocks as many parrots do
Birds I see often sometimes every day
Quite distinctive from other cockatoos in every way

Pink Eared Duck

Not classified as rare birds though let me hereby say
That on your lakeside walks pink eared ducks you don't see every day
With barred unders and fleshy lobe under front of bill and mostly brown to gray
Quite distinctive from other ducks in their colouring and their way

Pink Blossoms Are Stirring'

Pink blossoms are stirring in the freshening breeze
On the last days of Winter on the leaf budding fruit trees
On the last week of August a few sleeps from the calendar Spring
The beauty in Nature is such an amazing thing

The Pink Camellia Petals

On the ground by the camellia tree her flower petals in decay
And birds whistling and chirping on this sunny Spring day
The flowers that bloom in Winter die quickly in the Spring
Even before most young birds have taken to wing.
