A Fountain Of Knowledge - Poem by Francis Duggan

Today she told me I feel I've been in luck
I did see a small flock of shoveller duck
Around these parts their species is known to be rare
Some of her knowledge of Nature with me she did share
Of late she said I've not been feeling that well
The years on me now are beginning to tell
The clock on my life it keeps ticking away
Though from Nature I learn something new every day
A fountain of knowledge of her one can say
And people like her one don't meet every day
The passing of time may have left her walking slow
But of poetry, Nature and life much she did seem to know
A beautiful soul I may not meet again
Though fond memories of her I'll surely retain.
