 A Lucky Woman by Kerry Hardie

Kerry Hardie went to school in County Down and now lives in County Kilkenny with her husband Seán.

She is a member of Aosdána.



I am watching the garden, its grave beauty,
the tulips, frail green spears,
loitering the April dusk.

And jackdaws, standing on the empty chimney,
their bright intelligence, their blue-black gloss,
their bird-ness, their thick, throaty laughter.

Ah world, you don’t know
you don’t care,
whether I love you or not.

                                          Kerry Hardie



A Lucky Woman follows two collections from Bloodaxe Books and six previous poetry collections with Gallery Press. Her work has received numerous prizes and awards and is widely translated and anthologized.

She has also written two novels, a radio play (RTE) and just completed a further novel.
