TomasJMurray: (Patrick Kavanagh, ‘A Star’)
“Beauty was that
Far vanished flame,
Call it a star
Wanting better name.
And gaze and gaze
Nothing is left
Save a grey ghost-hill.
Here wait I
On the world’s rim
Stretching out hands

RealTerryKinney: It's as simple as that, it's a matter
Of walking with the little gods, the ignored
Who are so seldom asked to write the letter
Containing the word.
O only free gift! No need for Art anymore
When Authority whispers like Tyranny at the end of a bar.
~ Patrick Kavanagh
KavanaghWeekly: From 'Patrick Kavanagh - A Biography' By Antoinette Quinn, 2001. It was a mixture of downright madness and ignorance, and how so many of us managed to survive is a tribute to the Life Force. A good many did die, or were left with complaints that stayed with them all their lives.
