Late April In Duhallow - Poem by Francis Duggan

Late April in Duhallow a lovely time of year
The song of the blackbird melodious and clear
Less than a weeks from May in the prime of the Spring
The wonders of Nature an amazing thing.

In weather quite pleasant of around twenty degrees
The nesting birds singing on the bushes and trees
And buttercups bloom by the silver tongued rill
That babbles to the river down the fields by the hill

Cattle on nutritious young grass gaining weight by the day
And the hawthorns coming to bloom will be in full bloom in mid May
Wildflowers in the old fields and Nature at her finest is seen
In late April in Duhallow everywhere lush and green

The swallows home to breed from warm climes far away
Above the fields in pursuit of flying insects spend most of their day
In Duhallow in late April far north as the bird fly
In distance many thousands of kilometers of sky.
