I Remember With Fondness - Poem by Francis Duggan

I remember with fondness those i may never again meet
That i have not seen since i lived in Millstreet
Some of them at peace now forever does lay
And some as i am from Millstreet ageing far away
And some of them in Ireland did choose to stay
And live not far from where they first looked on the light of day
On my flights of fancy them i often see
Theyhave not aged a day in my memory
But time changes faces i have come to realize
And some of them in the flesh today i may not recognize
For the town and the countryside in view of Clara i have shed my last tears
And though i remember with fondness people i have not seen for years
Far south of where i went to primary school
My home is where i live close to Warrnambool.
