    I have just read A True Welcome Within All Eyes and was impressed by its combination of the celestial, natural and mechanical worlds. Also by a measure of cool intelligence and (com) passion behind the poem's charm. To take that measure in full will clearly call for a great deal more reading of this poet's work - on the evidence of this brief acquaintance, no troublesome task.

    You are evidently an extremely gifted young poet. Ireland needs some new talented writers and I believe you are one of them. I note you won First Prize at Listowel Writer's Week in 2006. Congratulations on your excellent work. I look forward to reading more of it.

Best Poem of Sean Godley

Achilles And Cobain

Those sworn in blood to live wild and die young,
And lend their wayward impulse in dry night,
Live on forever in their joys re-sung.

They take no heed of warning eye or tongue,
No spectres, nor the mortal moral, fright
Those sworn in blood to live wild and die young.

Although, too soon, their songs will leave the lung,
Their laughter and unhesitating sight
Live on forever in their joys re-sung.

Their eyes are fire, their hearts and nerves unstrung,
Inside them flows the stars and dancing light,
Those sworn in blood to live wild and die ...

Read the full of Achilles And Cobain

Sixty Summers

when pollen perfumes with the wind
the rooms and chests of fleeting loom
may meet it sweetly frowning twinned
of weeks unstirred to tap the push
of putrid petals made to shush
the crying child inside the womb
and darker yet some sixty summers gone
it made the youngsters shrill with fun
a will rekindling back my whiles
