    Dear Mr Grennan, I love your poetry very much and I decided to translate most of them into Russian. I am a freelance journalist writing for the Russian newspaper in Dublin Nasha Gazeta. Would you be so kind to contact to me as I need your permission to publish your poetry in Russian.
    Thank you very much for your amazing work

One Morning

Looking for distinctive stones, I found the dead otter
rotting by the tideline, and carried all day the scent of this savage
valediction. That headlong high sound the oystercatcher makes
came echoing through the rocky cove
where a cormorant was feeding and submarining in the bay
and a heron rose off a boulder where he'd been invisible,
drifted a little, stood again -- a hieroglyph
or just longevity reflecting on itself
between the sky clouding over and the lightly ruffled water.
