Why the poetry of Patrick Kavanagh still rules us all

Something is moving inside me again. The words of poetic form, the images of the everyday sanctified. It’s the end of September and the season is changing, summer’s work is almost done and autumn’s new feet need to be picked up. I’ve been thinking about life, nature and farming for these many long weeks, not just because I’ve experienced them, but also because of the artist Patrick Kavanagh who was present in my mind.

I was thinking of this great poet because tonight I’m giving a talk about him, so I took a journey back through life and childhood until poetry first entered my being. In a way, Kavanagh seems to have always been there, to guide, to enlighten, to inspire. He was a farmer’s son so we have that in common but as I read more about him this month I saw so many connections.
