It Cannot Be Never

It cannot be never that the best people are dead
For they are now history their last words are said
So many great people are born today
And life it goes on it's always been this way,
On the enlightened minds genius can only grow
And though people they come and people they go
The works of the great thinkers destined to live on
And the mantle of greatness the great only don
But having said that everyone can be great
Since everybody is born with the gift to create
But some to their gifts never seem to relate
And they grow old to find time for them did not wait
And to those who only need it the most greatness will belong
And those who say the best are long dead have got it all wrong.

It Comes And It Fades

It comes and it fades like images in a dream
The voice of the dipper in the upland stream
That babbles downhill along by the hedgerow
On to the big river it ever does flow.

With age the old memories are fading away
The song of the cuckoo in the month of May
The wildflowers so beautiful in the sun shine after rain
The past it returns to visit me again.

The song of the chaffinch I fancy I hear
Though the leafy wood-land to me nowhere near
The wood pigeon's wings makes a whirring sound in flight
Fond memories of Nature a thing of delight

The little brown skylark for to sing has to fly
Above the bracken hill a small speck in the sky
Though in the gray clouds he fades to disappear
The song of the bird I still fancy I hear.

The Goddess of Nature the one God I know
Her beauty is with me where-ever I go
She followed me here from the hills far away
Her birds always sing for to greet the new day.

It comes and it fades like the fair rose in bloom
Though the memories linger of her fragrant perfume
And Nature I love since to her I belong
And she is my reason for writing this song

It Does Seem A Very Hard Thing To Explain

It does seem a very hard thing to explain
Why one person's loss is another one's gain
A downturn in the stockmarket millionaires to paupers does create
Whilst some from others loss gain and their good fortune celebrate
In a fair society this never would be
Though what's fair to you may not seem fair to me
That somebody's huge financial loss creates a new millionaire
That society is structured in this way to me seems unfair
'Tis an ill wind that does not blow somebody good you do hear some say
And sometimes lady luck behaves in the strangest way
But is this what the Human World is all about
For one for to win someone else must lose out
And that many must lose for a few for to gain
For to say the least seems a hard thing to explain.

It Does Take All Kinds

One might say I've written a whole heap of stuff
Some of it uneven and some of it rough
The stuff that I pen not the type one can sell
Though what is or is not poetry I'm not one who could tell
Since I'm one who does not have a literary degree
About poets and poetry one should not ask me
And though they never will bring me wealth or renown
The thoughts that come to me on paper I pen down
One thing I know of poets I do know poets are rare
And one poet with another one ought not to compare
'Tis said by some poets are born not made
But all writers good or not so good contribute to the wordsmith trade
And I too contribute in some sort of a way
It does take all kinds as some are known to say.
 
Francis Duggan
