Seamus is James in Irish.
My Dad thinks that Seamus can see into the minds of grown-ups
and find things that they had forgotten they once felt.
This is really my Dad's choice. I only know Raglan Road,
which you can sing
as well as recite.

Lots of information about poetry on the internet.
William Butler Yeats
He wrote a poem about the
Lake Isle of Innisfree.
My Dad's grandmother came from the
village closet to that island
but I haven't visited it yet.
He is American, like my Mum. He writes about
nature, particularly the countryside near
my cousins' house.
Some of his poems are very sad.
