Patrick Kavanagh on epiphany

“O unworn world enrapture me, encapture me in a web / Of fabulous grass and eternal voices by a beech, / Feed the gaping need of my sense, give me ad lib / To pray unselfconsciously with overflowing speech / For this soul needs to be honored with a new dress woven / From green and blue things and arguments that cannot be proven.”
–Patrick Kavanagh, “Canal Bank Walk” (1958)
