FOR SEAMUS........

Ahhh Seamus, the great hall is quiet now,
The ghosts have gone away,
Boasts and chants,
Sword and lance,
Of monsters and Beowolf,
Grindel and fiery dragon slain.

Hi Andrew,

A lovely tribute to a wonderful poet. I was only watching him on YouTube recently critiquing another famous poet. We should always value the great poets. They are such masters at reflecting the consciousness of the times. sad flower wine
