Poem of the Week--"The Pier"

"The Pier" by Vona Groarke

Said to be a young Irish poet, I do not know if the name is Irish; however, if so, and if it follows the normal rules of Irish orthography, I think the name is pronounced somewhat like a cross between Kay Ryan and Mary Oliver.  Perhaps Kay Oliver. 

All joking aside, the poem is robust, delightful, powerful in its spirit and in the capture of sheer joy and exuberance.  Go, enjoy!
