Bronze statue of Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh on the Grand Canal, Dublin, by sculptor John Coll.... ..Canal Bank Walk.  ..  .Leafy-with-love banks and the green waters of the canal.Pouring redemption for me, that I do.The will of God, wallow in the habitual, the banal,.Grow with nature again as before I grew..The bright stick trapped, the breeze adding a third.Party to the couple kissing on an old seat,.And a bird gathering materials for the nest for the Word.Eloquently new and abandoned to its delirious beat..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 senses, give me ad lib.To pray unselfconsciously with overflowing speech.For this soul needs to be honoured with a new dress woven.From green and blue things and arguments that cannot be proven..
