Hamish Henderson

I was surfing for info on Hamish Henderson tonight, specifically his poetry, when I came across this in an obituary:

He believed in the constantly regenerative power of our heritage, ever giving birth to new creation and modes of expression, as he said himself in "Under the earth I go:"

Then tomorrow, songs
Will flow free again, and new voices
Be borne on the carrying stream.

You see, I think that's a wonderful antidote to nihilism.
