Faithful to the Living Magisterium and the Pope!
What was the michael longley poem you posted recently? It was really impressive but I can t find your original post
I think you mean Death of an Irishwoman by Michael Hartnett. Yes, it is really impressive, I have taken its last line as my signature on the Irish Conservatives Forum:Ignorant, in the sense she ate monotonous foodand thought the world was flat,and pagan, in the senseshe knew the things that movedat night were neither dogs nor catsbut púcas and darkfaced men,she nevertheless had fierce pride.But sentenced in the endto eat thin diminishing porridgein a stone-cold kitchenshe clenched her brittle handsaround a worldshe could not understand.I loved her from the day she died.She was a summer dance at the crossroads.She was a card game where a nose was broken.She was a song that nobody sings.She was a house ransacked by soldiers.She was a language seldom spoken.She was a child’s purse, full of useless things.
