Sea Sounds by Night

My response to Carpe Diem #944 willow – the technique of literary reference

A poet whose writing I really admire is Seamus Heaney and one of my favourite poems by him is ‘Storm on the Island’, which I have used as my literary reference.

 

Wind roars in marram

Raising a tragic chorus

Whistling in the dunes

Waves explode on nearby sand

Familiar company
