Canal Water Haiku

greeny canal water...
face to face
with Patrick Kavanagh

Shamrock, 27, 2014

Note:  There is a statue of Patrick Kavanagh along the Grand Canal in Dublin, inspired by his poem "Lines written on a Seat on the Grand Canal, Dublin":

O commemorate me where there is water
canal water preferably, so stilly
greeny at the heart of summer. Brother
commemorate me thus beautifully.
