"The sun rises in spite of everything " - D Mahon

An excerpt from the poem: Everything Is Going to Be All Right

"How should I not be glad to contemplate 
the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window 
and a high tide reflected on the ceiling? 
There will be dying, there will be dying, 
but there is no need to go into that. 
The poems flow from the hand unbidden 
and the hidden source is the watchful heart. 
The sun rises in spite of everything 
and the far cities are beautiful and bright. 
I lie here in a riot of sunlight 
watching the day break and the clouds flying. 
Everything is going to be all right.”

- Derek Mahon

Inkwell Originals is the in-house studio of Inkwell, a modern handmade boutique & letterpress studio in downtown Halifax. Graphic designers Andrea Rahal and Daniel MacDonald create art prints, greeting cards, postcards, stationery and drink coasters inspired by the ocean, coastline, Nova Scotia and the people of Halifax. Antique letterpresses create these tactile products. The cast-iron presses are hand-powered and the paper is fed by hand. The end result is a charming and tactile impression in the paper.
