1 2 more Seamus Heaney quotes
Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests.
I'll dig with it.
Seamus Heaney
The famous
Northern reticence, the tight gag of place
And times: yes, yes. Of the 'wee six' I sing
Where to be saved you only must save face
And whatever you say, you say nothing.
Seamus Heaney
What You Say Say Nothing
I rhyme
To see myself, to set the darkness echoing.
Seamus Heaney
Personal Helicon (For Michael Longley).
Who would connive
in civilized outrage
yet understand the exact
and tribal, intimate revenge.
Seamus Heaney
All I know is a door into the dark.
Seamus Heaney
The Forge
A people hungering from birth,
grubbing, like plants, in the bitch earth,
were grafted with a great sorrow.
Seamus Heaney
At a Potato Digging
Wearing a poppy bruise on his left temple,
He lay in the four foot box as in his cot,
No gaudy scars, the bumper knocked him clear.
A four foot box, a foot for every year.
Seamus Heaney
Mid-Term Break
How culpable was he
That last night when he broke
Our tribe's complicity?
'Now you're supposed to be
An educated man,'
I hear him say. 'Puzzle me
The right answer to that one.'
Seamus Heaney
Me waiting until I was nearly fifty
To credit marvels.
Seamus Heaney
Be advised
My passport's green.
No glass of ours was ever raised
To toast The Queen.
Seamus Heaney
Open Letter
History says, Don't hope
on this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime
the longed for tidal wave
of justice can rise up,
and hope and history rhyme.
Seamus Heaney
The Cure at Troy
