Summer Wanes And Blackberries Ripen


Nothing symbolizes the beauty of a long, hard-earned summer like a ripened blackberry. And no poet has written about this delicious fruit as eloquently as Seamus Heaney – who kicks off the Poetry Center’s 2011/12 season on September 26.

So, to summer’s end, and to the start of 92Y’s literary season, we give you Seamus Heaney reading “Blackberry Picking”:

Blackberry Picking” can be found in Heaney’s Opened Ground: Selected Poems, 1966-1996.

And by the way, if you know where to look in New York City, you can find some blackberries on your travels.
