Duhallow In May

In the leafy groves of Duhallow from here far away
The nesting birds of Nature are singing today
And the hawthorns are cloaked in their blooms of white to gray
And the old fields lush and green in their wildflowers of May

When the voice of the migratory cuckoo one does hear
May in Duhallow is a lovely time of year
Everywhere fresh looking and green after the recent rain
Visual memories of such beauty a lifetime to retain

In the fields of the badger and waterways of the brown trout
For a writer so much beauty for to write about
Cattle out of wintering sheds from months of eating silage and hay
On nutritious young grass are gaining weight by the day

The dark swallows are chasing flying insects in the sky
Their young will have grown and be flying by July
In mid Autumn with their families they will migrate south
To the warmer climates where there are plenty of flying insects about

New glossy green leaves on every deciduous tree
In Duhallow in May so much beauty to see
Such beautiful memories a lifetime to retain
For to visit again and again and again.
