As summer wanes, we hear the words of Irish poet Seamus Heaney, read by NPR's Tom Cole.

"Blackberry Picking" can be found in Opened Ground: Selected Poems 1966-1996. Heaney, born in 1939, won the Nobel Prize in 1995. According to his Nobel biography, he grew up as a country boy on a farm in County Derry, northern Ireland.
