Summary

His poems display an otherworldly wonder while keeping a sharply observant eye on the everyday world. From "Angels and Harvesters": As thoughts arrive From god knows where, Or sun breaks through A fraying cloud Emboldening a patch Of trees, or grass, They just appeared From nowhere Among the harvesters . . . James Harpurwon Ireland's 2009 Michael Hartnett Poetry Award. He lives in County Cork, Ireland.
