Monday Musings…Seamus Heaney on the power of hope…

I’m proud that I come from Ulster.

The birthplace of one of Ireland’s greatest poets, Seamus Heaney.

Here’s Heaney’s view on the power and progress of hope…


So hope for a great sea-change
On the far side of revenge.
Believe that a further shore
Is reachable from here.
Believe in miracle
And cures and healing wells.
From “The Cure at Troy”.

And given recent political developments across the USA and breaking news regarding a vaccine that limits the devastation of Covid, let’s continue to…

“Believe that a further shore, is reachable…”

And set sail.
