Anahorish

  • My "Place Of Clear Water"
    The first hill in the world
    Where springs washed into
    The shiny grass

    And darkened cobbles
    In the bed of the lane
    Anahorish, soft gradient
    Of consonant, vowel meadow

    After image of lamps
    Swung through the yards
    On winter evenings
    With pails and barrows

    Those mound dwellers
    Go waist deep in mist
    To break the light ice
    At wells and dunghills Writer/s: Lisa Margaret Hannigan, Seamus Heaney
    Publisher: Universal Music Publishing Group
