" Cloudburst and steady downpour now
for days.
Still mammal,
straw-footed on the mud,
he begins to sense weather
by his skin.
A nimble snout of flood
Licks over stepping stones
And goes uprooting
he fords
his life by sounding.
Soundings.
"

 In honor of the late Seamus Heaney, Irish poet and Nobel winner, a selection from his poem “Gifts of Rain”
