(1904 - 1967 / County Monaghan)

Gospel - Poem by Patrick Kavanagh

We are the children of light,
Wise, not companioned
By goats
In a condemned graveyard.

Backward blowing
Blizzards of memory
Flatten out
The genealogies.

But here a point,
The objective essence
We work in.
We shall not drink from the stink-pots.

Gospel spread
With tin shovels,
We are this generation.
