RIP Seamus Heaney  froggie  2 Sep 13 3:58AM Thread Closed

Seamus Heaney, who died last friday, was perhaps Ireland's greatest poet since Keats.

Rest in peace, Seamus.

It’s a strange term “Requiescat in pace” when applied to a person’s unknown spiritual destination, don’t you think?

Or at least as far as the Catholic religion is concerned, which appears to make some strange assumptions.

Thanks for opening this new thread. It seems the last one was removed.

Got any Rudyard Kipling? I have The Jungle Book if you can swap it for one of his poetry books.

He's dead these days, too.

This one is probably my favourite SH piece - it's so incredibly wistful, and sweet, and gives me an image of a place I've never seen: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/anahorish/

I bet you don't even know what Anahorish means.
