AN EXTRACT FROM KENNETH ROY’S FINAL BOOK

It looks like a beautiful day out there. My little patch of sky, of which I’m inordinately fond, keeps me posted. Dr Gillen arrives with the news that my haemoglobin level has doubled in the last 24 hours and I am able to inform him in response that I’ve written 3,000 words in the same 24-hour period, and so for the moment… for the moment… in overtime what one does is savour the moment… because it’s all there is… for the moment, we’re both pleased with me.

OVERTOUN ESTATE IN OCTOBER

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

FAMILIES GET SNEAK PREVIEW OF DRUMFORK CENTRE
