Seamus Hogan Poet by John Minahan Skibbereen 2015

Grey Smoke Against a Grey Sky – New and Selected Poems by Seamus Hogan.

Cherry Blossom


Having dug less deep

crocus, snowdrop and daffodil

are first to mine the hard clay

for colour. But you, in your quiet way,


Spring after Spring continue to surprise.

Among others sap has hardly begun to rise

and you’re already in jewels of flame;

the soil’s own poet in all but name.
