“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”
DERRY – TERRANCE GAVAN
One day in Ireland
Scarred and torn by war
I passed a single flower
Hard by a barred up door
The windows, metal shuttered
Shone grey against the sum
And little children passed
and one by one
Ski or web
