Philip from Dublin, a Casey and one of us , Yes, “His duty all ended ? ”
Philip , cousin and brother, poet and seer, was one of the most beautiful people I know.
One of the most generous – in his time and thought . He cared.
For my Festschrift – FRANK CORCORAN AT SEVENTY
_ SEAN AGUS NUA – Philip penned his polyphonic, polyvalent poem, ” QUILLSPILL ” . It sounds his tocsin now ,
Philip’s sufferings all ended:
Bell music; bell
Notes fade over
The rosy fingers of Eos
On the river…. ”
– Sea, n’i bheidh a leitheid eile ar’is ann … I too, here in Hamburg, mourn his passing.
