Seamus’ last words


The last words of the greatest Irish poet since Yeats were in Latin, in the form of a text message. This has some sort of significance but I’m damned if I yet know what. It will come to me. I also note that the man who may well be the greatest Irish poet since Heaney (if he counts as a poet, or Irish) was late for the funeral.

Appropriate last words - he often struck me as comforting and always as resilient.
