Seamus Heaney (1939-2013)

To say I am not a Seamus Heaney fan is only true, because I'm no poetry expert, and not overly familiar with his work.  But with the announcement of his death came the memory of a great song, a favorite of mine, by a favorite artist, who claims to have been inspired to write the song by Heaney's poem, "Skylight".  It's been awhile since I've listened to it:

Maybe you will like it.  Maybe Mr. Heaney did, if he ever heard it...
