George Mackay Brown

Many thanks for the poem 'Old women', which I didn't know - here's another of his -  'Kirkyard'
A silent conquering army,
the island dead.
Column on column, each with a stone banner
raised over his head.

A green wave full of fish
drifted far
in wavering westering ebb-drawn shoals beyond
sinker or star.

A labyrinth of celled
and waxen pain.
Yet I come to the honeycomb often, to sip the finished
fragrance of men.
