Seamus Heaney

Today in my English class we read a poem by Seamus Heaney, a famous Irish poet who has won the Nobel Prize for Literature. This is how my English teacher described him to the class. I just wrote it down.


Seamus Heaney is a darling little man,
With blue twinkly eyes like Santa Claus
And he wears little glasses
And when he looks at you, peering over -

I HEART SEAMUS HEANEY,

(in a non-nerdy way ofc)

The potatoes like skulls, and digging with a pen and the frogspawn and the imagery...oh, what a babe.

(Feeling mildly nostalgic now)

peering over. . .
HALF MOON GLASSES!!
Or is that right?
Oh well, it reminds me of Dumbledore :)

Seamus Heaney's brilliant - I've heard him read! I wish we learned about him in English though, we never do anything interesting...

Seamus Heeney, I have to admit I'm not a fan :( It's just that one poem The Early Purges that put me off him! I'm mad into the sexist poets haha.. Lovely blog btw.
