Patrick Kavanagh


Seek in all that which proves
The exciting moment.
Few are they
Who have seen once deeply
Through the veil of clay.

Not difusely [sic]
Is true beauty spread
Over a day of years,
But in a moment too bright,
Too fierce
For cowards, 
One appears,
And simple as a lonely child's delight.
