Poems of Lewis


Here they have no time for the fine graces | of poetry, unless it freely grows | in deep compulsion, like water in the well, | woven into the texture of the soil | in a strong pattern.
Quotations
Gaelic Songs |
I listen to these songs...[on the radio] taking just a moment | between two programmes | elbowing them fiercely | between two darknesses.
