Words Chosen (Seamus Heaney)

He chose carefully

Words

such as leave and twig

Ditch and stream

Manmade shovel and

Spade

Hands that laboured

…..worked

echoed their rhythm and

Rhyme

through time and space

Gleaned from landscape and

Place

yet tainted with

Ambiguous memory

Cantered with subtle pace

Stained black on white

left to sit

as ink on paper

like crumbs on table

Remnants of a life…..

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
