Inscribed by Heaney on title page: “Of course, the poet makes a book… The painter is content to look/And so, dear Shelagh, reparation/For this wordy publication/Will be required some day, no doubt. Meanwhile in doggerel, I shout/Poets and writers rule ok.” Three cheers for Cheltenham. Hooray!. Seamus, 13 October 1988.”
