    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

Best Poem of Eamon Grennan

Cold Morning

Through an accidental crack in the curtain
I can see the eight o'clock light change from
charcoal to a faint gassy blue, inventing things

in the morning that has a thick skin of ice on it
as the water tank has, so nothing flows, all is bone,
telling its tale of how hard the night had to be

for any heart caught out in it, just flesh and blood
no match for the mindless chill that's settled in,
a great stone bird, its wings stretched stiff

from the tip of Letter Hill to the cobbled bay, its gaze
glacial, its hook-and-scrabble claws fast clamped ...
