Poll: Can you recite a few lines of Patrick Kavanagh's poetry?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

We are guessing that poet and President Michael D Higgins, seen here beside the Patrick Kavanagh statue in 1994, can recite a verse or two.

PATRICK KAVANAGH, POET and novelist, died 50 years ago today. Some of his best-known poems – such as On Raglan Road, Stony Grey Soil, Inniskeen Road: July Evening – are part of the national psyche.

If you were put on the spot, would you be able to recite a few lines of a Patrick Kavanagh poem? (Feel free to entertain us with your favourite lines in the comments – no Googling now…)
