Sometimes I Envy Those - Poem by Francis Duggan
Sometimes I envy those who never leave their Hometown
For to travel and work and to live elsewhere
They are happy in the place where they were born in
And have no wish to see some of the bigger World out there.
They never wish to leave their native parish
In them they do have a strong sense of place
Where they reside well known to every local
Where everybody does know the familiar face.
I'm one of those who have the bug of wander
Though many have seen more of the World than me
The more one travels the more one does realize
How much there is of in the World to see.
I've never seen the great wonders of the World
Or I've never been to Paris or to Rome
And though I live far south of my native Townland
Old Claraghatlea to me is always home.
