    ‘When all the others were away at Mass’
    [from Clearances in memoriam M.K.H., 1911-1984]
    by Seamus Heaney
    3

    When all the others were away at Mass
    I was all hers as we peeled potatoes.
    They broke the silence, let fall one by one
    Like solder weeping off the soldering iron:
    Cold comforts set between us, things to share
    Gleaming in a bucket of clean water.
    And again let fall. Little pleasant splashes
    From each other’s work would bring us to our senses."
