For Edmund Joseph Berrigan

Lovely tones of mist sweep
off the channels of England
and the Irish sea ring
with the strength of a home,
 
from where you are and from where
you come a heritage
of an older, more final poetry
fills the breath of a new age
 
Edmund Joseph Berrigan
born today    across the cool Atlantic
 
here in America    another sea . . .
 
from this you have grown
 
and so will he

(1974)
