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