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

    and wait and watch until
    The fattening dots burst into nimble-
    Swimming tadpoles.
    Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)

    The cold smell of potato mould, the squelch and slap
    Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
    Through living roots awaken in my head.
    But I’ve no spade to follow men like them.
    —Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)
