Uncle Roderick #InternationalMensDay

Friday, 19th of November 2021 is International Men’s Day.

Round Rhu nan Cuideagan
he steered for home, a boy’s god
in seaboots. He found his anchorage
as a bird its nest.

In the kitchen he dropped
his oilskins where he stood.

He was strong as the red bull.
He moved like a dancer.
He was a cran of songs.

from ‘Uncle Roderick’ by Norman MacCaig
