I've lived for Sixty One Years

I've lived for sixty one years in time quite a span
And I reside far from where my life's journey began
I have never been known as a succesful man
But I want to live on for as long as I can.

I no longer daydream of literary fame
And mine won't live on as a remembered name
I don't care if my life story will not be told
But I want to live on for to grow very old.

To the great gift of life I raise my glass of cheer
But of the scythe of the Reaper I do live in fear
But to his higher self Mr Death he is true
He is an egalatarian to give him his due.

I am a great coward of that fact I won't lie
And it scares me to think that I too have to die
And I hope to live on though I have seen many a Spring
For the great gift of life is a wonderful thing.

I've Loved Mother Nature

I've loved Mother Nature since I was a boy
And a walk in her World I always enjoy
The songs of her birds and buzzings of her bees
And the soughing of the wind in her bushes and trees
The skylark is carolling o'er the bracken clad hill
And the babbling song of the silvery tongued rill
Flowing down to the river towards the ocean shore
The magic of Nature is forever more
I love Mother Nature the colours she wear
The food for all life forms on her Earth she does bear
On her very existence there is not a time span
And she can live with or without the family of man
I've loved Mother Nature since I was quite young
And like others her praises I often have sung.

I've Never

I've never fought in war put my life on the line
Perhaps that's why I live to sing for Auld lang syne
Perhaps that why I live to see another year
But as the days go by the reaper's lurking near.

I've never been good at sports of such I cannot boast
And people to honour me have never drunk a toast
Yet the finest of athletes who have won Olympic gold
Too lose their zest for life as they grow tired and old.

I've never climbed Everest or walked upon the moon
But perhaps the glory for all fade too soon
And though the stream forever down land flow
As years go by the people come and go.

And though I have not scaled the high hill of success
I too pursue the thing called happiness
And though the years have left me looking gray
I feel that the good times are not far away.

I've Never Been Shortlisted

I've never been short listed for a literary prize
Which after all is not any surprise
Since I cannot make a living from my pen
I'm one of the group of the would be literary men.

And though others my verses may not recite
I keep on penning stuff for I was born to write
Addicted to penning rhyme for many a day
Of life and Nature there's so much to say.

To any hope of literary success I'm not one who cling
But of life and Nature I'm happy to sing
There is far more to the bird than his song
To him and to Nature his secrets belong.

Let others dream of their immortality
The stuff I have written will not outlive me
But not everyone who writes is one of note
And of course not everyone can be a poet.

Though I've penned doggerel for many a day
I've never said with words I had a way
I'm one of those who does pen heaps of stuff
But to make the grade few do seem good enough.
 
Francis Duggan
