The Eastern Curlews Are Piping Today - Poem by Francis Duggan

Above the mudflats of McLoughlins Beach from here far away
The eastern curlews are piping today
Their flute like notes so melodious and clear
The pleasant memory of such to my thoughts ever near
At McLoughlins Beach in South Gippsland in Spring
The music of the flute of the curlew is a beautiful thing
On cool blustery weather around twenty degrees
Their music is carrying in the coastal breeze
A memory to cherish and for to retain
And for to memorize again and again
The flute of the curlew a beautiful sound
They journey far south of their north eastern breeding ground
To McLoughlins Beach in South Gippsland in the Spring of the year
Where their flute like notes are so pleasant to hear.
