One of my favorite stanzas from Seamus Heaney's poem, "Digging":
The cold smell of potato mould, the squelch and slap
Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
Through the living roots awaken in my head.
But I've no spade to follow men like them.
I had the pleasure of hearing him read this poem (and several others) to my class in 1988. I got to meet him at the meet and greet afterward, but was too "cool" to ask him to sign my book. If only I could go back in time... I would have asked for his autograph and gotten a photograph with him. Sigh.
