I will always treasure an evening of poetry reading with Mr. Heaney in the 1980s at the University of South Carolina.

The family have my deepest sympathy for their loss. May Mr. Heaney sleep in peace until our Father who is in the heavens says "Wake Up["

You belong to this green land, always, for this being, and before and after. And beyond immortality, are your poems, and love and passion for this land. May you rest in peace.

All I can think to sa at this loss is a quote from Emily Dickinson "Unable are the loved to die for love is immortality." Proud that he is one of my country man. An admirer --John P.

May you find comfort in Eccl. 9:5-6. Mr. Heaney is at peace and in no pain. Your family have my condolences.

Very sad to see a bright light gone out. But his poetry will never be diminished. His work has touched many including myself. I had the fortune to hear him performing the "poet and Piper" many years ago. In remembrance, below is a Chinese translation I made for his poem "Digging"

Go with God

Let silence descend over
The bleeding cut of division.
Heaney is dead.
No more of his digging
The pen welded to his thought
Now come an understanding
Even Poets are not immortal.
Paper and Universe erode
What is left is a whisper
A something that was
The poetry of Irelands Poet.

A curious sense of loss occcur. The poem Digging. Gave rise to a long poem years ago.

Sorry I am to see you gone
