    See Poem by Angela Alaimo O'Donnell GLASNEVIN GRAVEYARD "Mine, O thou lord of life, send my roots rain." --Gerard Manley Hopkins Walking these grounds I nearly hear you in the finch-feather-fall, the summer-clover-clamor. Under rain gray sky, "a soft day," the natives would say, you lie in strange earth poet among the dead and dumb. I wander cinder paths and find you far from the splendor of Parnell’s rock, neat crosses of decent Dubliners. Yet you are not alone, a name engraved on a single stone inscribed with scores of others, a mass of priestly brothers. A few Latin syllables claim your space for eternity. Beneath these grieving yews you’ve taken root. Withered now to ash beyond this brief burning refined past reckoning even your bones sing. About this event: An evening of conversation and poetry with Prof. Angela ALAIMO O’DONNELL, Poet and Associate Director of the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies at Fordham University, and Ms. Concetta PILSNER, English Language Arts Instructor, Cardinal Spellman High School, Bronx, NY Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center, the American Bible Society, and the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies
