From Far Off Macroom - Poem by Francis Duggan

In the prime of her life like a flower in full bloom
The dark haired young beauty from far off Macroom
From the fields of the badger and the silver backed crow
Where the waters of Sullane as ever does flow

A beautiful smile on her beautiful face
Of conceit and guile in her not any trace
So friendly and warm in her own charming way
That a smile does not cost a thing so true for to say

In the groves of Macroom the birds singing today
But in Warrnambool she is quite happy to stay
Her friends in the sea side City hope in Warrnambool she will remain
A huge loss to central Cork has been south west Victoria's gain

An Autumn day in south west Victoria the weather quite cool
Typical weather for the time of year in breezy Warrnambool
In her early twenties a happy young woman with the inner glow
Far south of the place where Sullane waters flow.
