A poet of the people.
Loved by so many.
In almost every house I visited
in Ireland his books were there,
handy as the telephone directory.
I heard him on the radio one rainy day
driving from Belfast to Dublin.
Such resonance and depth in his voice,
coming from those small speakers.
In Dublin I bought 'Opened Ground'
and a copy of his cd with Liam O'Flynn,
'The Poet & The Piper'.
A most beloved man and poet.
RIP, Seamus Heaney.
