Far North In Duhallow From Here Far Away - Poem by Francis Duggan

Far north in Duhallow from here far away
The sky overcast it is raining today
The weather is cool around eighteen degrees
And the first brown leaves of September drift down in the breeze
To Mother Earth who receives them the one who receives all
Of her life forms including brown leaves of the Fall
Weatherwise September a changeable time of the year
The swallows flying low a sign that rain is near
Each hour brings them nearer to departure time
When they leave Duhallow for the warmer clime
The streams and rivers flowing bank high after recent heavy rain
And brown flood waters gurgling in the roadside drain
And rain clouds are gathering in the gray afternoon sky
Far north of here in Duhallow even as the migratory bird does fly.
