Poetry-From Glanmore Sonnets

IMG_0428I dreamt we slept in a moss in Donegal

On turf banks under blankets, with our faces

Exposed all night in a wetting drizzle,

Pallid as the dripping sapling birches.

–Seamus Heaney

In addition to winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, Seamus Heaney was awarded the Lifetime Recognition Award from the Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry.  He was born in Northern Ireland, but spent his later years in Dublin.
