Heaney’s ‘The Forge’ and Barellan’s Good Old Times Festival


This blog is usually for words composed by me, which, may resemble something vaguely like poetry.  Having attended Barellan’s ‘Good Old Times Festival‘ yesterday, and having seen a blacksmith at his forge, I was delighted to come upon the late Seamus Heaney’s poem of the same name.  Thanks to Genius for providing an online text for us.  More information can be found on Seamus Heaney on his page at the Poetry Foundation.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
