Seamus Heaney, R.I.P.

Seamus Heaney died today Fred just told me.
that leaves very few of his caliber.
attached an anatomical study
as a sign of respect.

the drawing was on the desktop
when Fred brought me the sad news.

I have mailed you the ‘stone from delphi’
which really sums up the poet and man.

small precious stone
from Heaney’s ‘station island’
a day of mourning for eire
