Cronin's joyful, poetic voice
Sir - How do you say goodbye to someone whom you have never known yet who has been very much part of your life? Every Sunday morning it has been an essential part of my enjoyment of reading the Sunday Independent, to check what poet and poem Anthony Cronin was having us consider for the day; for the week.
Who was this person to me? He has been a consistently refreshing voice floating upon the breezes.
When things have seemed to be going very much out of kilter here on our lovely green desert isle, or even in the wider world, his timely, poetic voice and orientation have given me the feeling that there are still some things worth considering which could make me feel grateful, joyful and hopeful.
