Lamentby Patrick Stack
Lament was written sometime in the Autumn of 1984 while living in Donoghmore, County Wexford. An early version of the poem appeared in Voicefree 1 (01 January 1986), and a truncated version (the second stanza was missing) in Revival Poetry Journal #7 (Revival Press, March 2008). This is the full definitive version which is taken from my first poetry collection, The Parting (Amethyst Dragon, 2013).
This recording was made on 28 June 2020.
