  • Your own private bench in a public space. No one else can fit between you & Patrick 😁
  • Lines Written on a Seat on the Grand Canal, Dublin - by Patrick Kavanagh O commemorate me where there is water, Canal water, preferably, so stilly Greeny at the heart of summer. Brother Commemorate me thus beautifully Where by a lock niagarously roars The falls for those who sit in the tremendous silence Of mid-July. No one will speak in prose Who finds his way to these Parnassian islands. A swan goes by head low with many apologies, Fantastic light looks through the eyes of bridges - And look! a barge comes bringing from Athy And other far-flung towns mythologies. O commemorate me with no hero-courageous Tomb - just a canal-bank seat for the passer-by. -Patrick Kavanagh Copyright © Estate of Katherine Kavanagh
