The Man From Nova Scotia - Poem by Francis Duggan

The man from Nova Scotia is powerfully built and tall
And beside him other fellows to say the least seem small
Perhaps in his late twenties he does seem slightly shy
And quite a gentle person he would not harm a fly.

The man from Nova Scotia he has an Aussie wife
With a brown haired son and daughter of five and six he feels lucky in his life
He loves his wife and children and he works hard for his pay
And in the warm Southern Country he will grow old and gray.

Far away from Nova Scotia and the windswept northern shore
And the heavy snows of Winter in temperatures low as minus twenty four
Acclimatized to Victoria Australia's warmer climate where ten degrees would be seen as cold
Of his wild and rugged Homeland many stories he has told.

The man from Nova Scotia has a heart to match his size
And he has the look of wisdom in his brown and soulful eyes
On saturday evening at the local pub he enjoys a beer or two
And if you are a bit low in funds he will buy a drink for you.

The man from Nova Scotia is a generous sort of a bloke
And though quiet and rather laid back he can laugh at a good joke
He is happy with his lot in life he is one who doesn't complain
And a loss to Nova Scotia is surely Victoria's gain.
