Thread Name: Seamus Heaney - your favourite poem
Subject: Seamus Heaney - your favourite poem
Following Seamus Heaney's death I've realised that I don't recall reading any of his poems.

Now I don't read a lot of poetry, but I think that I'd like to try and understand what made him so special.

He wrote so many poems that, rather than starting at random,I'd be interested in hearing which poems people think best reflect him.

I'm being deliberately vague because I don't want to pick out any one aspect of his work , e.g. political, I just want people to pick the poems that spoke to them.
