Famous quotes containing the words seamus heaney and/or heaney:

    He sits, strong and blunt as a Celtic cross,
    Clearly used to silence and an armchair:
    Tonight the wife and children will be quiet
    At slammed door and smoker’s cough in the hall.

    The squat pen rests.
    I’ll dig with it.
