Seamus Heaney

"If you know a bit
about the universe
It's because you've taken it in
Like that.
Looked as hard
As you look into yourself,
Into the rat hole,
through the vetch and dock
that mantled it.
Because you've laid your cheek
Against the rush clump
And known soft stone to break
On the quarry floor."
~from "A Herbal"
Seamus Heaney- may he rest in peace.
