    "The great test over, while the gut´s still humming,/ This time it travels out of all knowing/ Perfectly aimed towards the vacant centre."
    It is from Seamus Heaney´s poem In Memoriam: Robert Fitzgerald.

    Heaney wrote great poetry, which surely will live on and on.
    Allezfred, good that you had the pleasure of meet him several times!

    Yes, I'm sure it will. He was already mentioned with the greats of Irish literature like Joyce, Yeats, Shaw and Beckett before he passed away.
