A haiku for Brendan Kennelly, poet.

I was at a bus stop in Dawson Street in Dublin when Brendan Kennelly walked past me:

Hello, the poet!

I called; he turned and smiled and

blew the sweetest kiss.

  1. He’s a great character, Diana, and well known around Dublin, although he’s a Kerry man. He lectured in Trinity College for many years and his students loved him. And of course his poetry is sublime!
