Here’s that poem when you have time, so you don’t have to go searching for it.

Villanelle for an Anniversary (Seamus Heaney)

A spirit moved. John Harvard walked the yard,
The atom lay unsplit, the west unwon,
The books stood open and the gates unbarred.

The maps dreamt on like moondust. Nothing stirred.
The future was a verb in hibernation.
A spirit moved, John Harvard walked the yard.

Before the classic style, before the clapboard,
All through the small hours of an origin,
The books stood open and the gate unbarred.

Night passage of a migratory bird.
Wingflap. Gownflap. Like a homing pigeon
A spirit moved, John Harvard walked the yard.

Was that his soul (look) sped to its reward
By grace or works? A shooting star? An omen?
The books stood open and the gate unbarred.

Begin again where frosts and tests were hard.
Find yourself or founder. Here, imagine
A spirit moves, John Harvard walks the yard,
The books stand open and the gates unbarred.

___________________________________

He wrote it for the 375th anniversary of Harvard University, if that lends any context to the reading.

Breaks are good. I needed it. It's nice to come back to see all of my friends. I may post some new stuff soon.

LOL. Yes, he's probably at that stage! No, he never talks. I don't think he's ever even introduced his band. Poets are so weird aren't they? So socially crippled.

I don't think he ever has an opening act, not usually anyway. That's awesome though, bet you guys had a great time!

Very cool. Poor guy is getting some flack over his silence about winning the Nobel but that's kind of his thing isn't it. He's an artist not a showman like Kanye or Jay-Z. He's never truly been comfortable in the spotlight (is what I hear). Good show? Where did you see him?
