|Seamus Heaney meeting HRH The Queen, Prince Phillip and Irish President Mary McAleese, during the Queen's recent visit to Ireland|
In 1993 my mother, during her visit, presented me with a book New Selected Poems 1966-1987. The author Seamus Heaney. Heaney, like W.B Yeats and Samual Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.
The book is well thumbed, there may be a tear and also a stain from a tear or two shed while reading and re-reading my favourite poems.
I shall leave you, my writer friends, with this peom called Digging
May your soul be at God's right hand side dear Seamus.
