Far South Of Where - Poem by Francis Duggan

Far south of where i was born and went to primary school
In this coastal countryside by Warrnambool
My past in my memories of what was with me does remain
In my moments of fancy for to visit again
Of where i grew to love Nature when i was a boy
And learning of her ways today i enjoy
For of Nature every day we learn something new
Her wonders are many and her secrets not few
On my flights of fancy i hear the birds sing
In a distant leafy grove in the prime of the Spring
When the hawthorns are in their white blooms of the May
Good memories live on as the wise one does say
A magpie is warbling on a sunlit gum tree
Suppose i am now where i am meant to be.

    Wow awesome poem in fantastic rhyming. ESP liked the imaginative 'flights of fancy' line and yes the secrets of nature are not few. Kudos.
