The Best Poet Of The Town - Poem by Francis Duggan

Despite her seven decades of years she is still the Town's
best poet
And of her writing talents the critics have taken note
The younger poets look up to her and them she does inspire
To them she is the Laureate and her they do admire
The great gift of poesy is such a marvellous thing
A woman who loves Nature and of Nature she does sing
One never can say of her that her better days are gone
But she is one who does love life and she keeps keeping on,
The best poet of the Town and district that title she has held for years
She has sung of all of the senses from joy to love and tears
She has penned poems to Nature and Nature's praises sing
And her poems are read by many and joy to many bring
She is in her early seventies and her hair is silver gray
But one cannot say of her she has known a better day.
