Anne Duggan - Poem by Francis Duggan

The youngest of the family of Cornelius and Catherine Duggan a woman who was compassionate and kind
Who was known for her generosity of spirit and brilliance of mind
From her Hometown of Millstreet Anne Duggan lives far away
She became a nun in the U S of A

One in her late sixties or early seventies with a great life story to tell
At poetry and stories one who writes rather well
Among the literary legends of Duhallow Anne can claim her place
Though to many living there nowadays hers may not be a known face

In the Millstreet of my younger years not a leading light
But i always did know her to be intelligent and bright
Anne Duggan one who has matured like good wine
From above average to genius she has crossed that line

If there is such a thing as re-incarnation which seems possible to me
Edward Walsh re-born she even may be
Duhallow's legendary poet in a now long gone day
I only say of her what does seem fair to say

I knew her to be charming and a pleasure to meet
Among Duhallow's literary exports the best of Millstreet
Her best days are coming her best days not gone
Good on you Anne Duggan keep on writing on.
