It rained when it should have snowed…Seamus Heaney QUOTES FOR WRITERS

It rained when it should have snowed.
When we went to gather holly
the ditches were swimming, we were wet
to the knees, our hands were all jags
and water ran up our sleeves.
There should have been berries
but the sprigs we brought into the house
gleamed like smashed bottle-glass.
Seamus Heaney
