On the River

In August the celebrated Irish poet, Seamus Heaney died at 74.

The Big Fella also had a birthday and we spent a lovely afternoon on the river.


"Her scarf a la Bardot,



In suede flats for the walk,


She came with me one evening



For air and friendly talk


We crossed the quiet river


Took the embankment walk." (from 'Twice Shy', Seamus Heaney)


I should  have worn that scarf a la Bardot.
