Seamus Heaney

Sad about Seamus dying and not even old.
I once had a poem published and a university lecturer said it did remind her of Seamus Heaney’s poetry. Arrogant daring I sent my poem to the great man at Faber & Faber.
The master actually replied in handwriting and appraised my work positively. Fortunate me.
Today I read in The Independent obituary that Seamus had sacksful of mail every day. He took time out for me.
