For Many Years - Poem by Francis Duggan

For many years I have loved Mother Nature she is the one who so amazes me
She is the one who feeds all living life forms the Goddess of the Land and of the Sea
The mystery of her presence all around me her beauty in every flowering bush and tree
She outlives all of her life forms and her Seasons she is not destined for mortality.
For many years and Seasons I have loved her the beauty of her Summer and her Spring
Her Autumnal hues and snow capped hills of Winter of her praises poets are inspired to sing
For many years I've marvelled at her beauty a beauty that will live forever more
The river that flows down from the high country that babbles it's way to the ocean shore
This is just one of her many creations she is the only God I claim to know
I loved her even when I was a school boy and that's going back some fifty years ago,
For many years she has filled my heart with wonder her beauty is around me everywhere
She is the only God I claim to know of with her none ever can hope to compare
She changes colours with the passing Seasons for her never a final night and day
I've loved her as a Primary school going fellow and I love her more now though I am aged and gray.
