Poems by Patrick Kavanagh

Sorted by title, showing title and first line

We have tested and tasted too much, lover-
Leafy-with-love banks and the green waters of the canal
I have lived in important places, times
I do not think of you lying in the wet clay
Every old man I see
And sometimes I am sorry when the grass
Upon a bank I sat, a child made seer
My black hills have never seen the sun rising,
O stony grey soil of Monaghan
