THE BOAT'S

inseparable ripples

The poem was one of the first two-word poems first considered in 1967 but this is almost certainly a posthumous reprint of the work but we do not know exactly the date. It was perhaps printed for a posthumous exhibition of Finlay's work. Until we identify it we will place it as an artist's postcard work.VG+.

Edinburgh: Wild Hawthorn Press, 2006
21 x 15cm, 4pp plus cared covers. Order of service for the Memorial Service held in Greyfriars Tolbooth and Highland Kirk on 3 April 2006. Attending I was surprised it was so religious in content as I had not perceived that Finlay was particularly Christian even if he sometimes used the bible as source material. The alter was laid out with many of his toy yachts, Alec Finlay, Ian's son, gave a moving Eulogy where I remember him saying fittingly that all disputes with his dad and others were now over. Some poems of Finlay were read and Stephan Bann gave a short appreciation. It was a sad affair, of course, as all such events are. VG+
