Thank God for Seamus Heaney — 2 Comments

  1. Very moving, Ian

    Heaney is indeed inspirational.

    “Your mother heavy with the lightness in her”

    Heavy with the burden of loss, and of longing.

    I’m stunned by Heaney’s power of insight. Thanks for sharing your find and for this reflective post.

  2. Hi, I too had a “rant” about that awful poem “I was not there….” when preaching last Sunday. But will put the Heaney in the file of “useful items”. It is very moving.
