There was a sunlit absence.The helmeted pump in the yardheated its iron,water honeyedin the slung bucketand the sun stoodlike a griddle coolingagainst the wallof each long afternoon.So, her hands scuffledover the bakeboard,the reddening stovesent its plaque of heatagainst her where she stoodin a floury apronby the window.Now she dusts the boardwith a goose's wing,now sits, broad-lapped,with whitened nailsand measling shins:here is a spaceagain, the scone risingto the tick of two clocks.And here is lovelike a tinsmith's scoopsunk past its gleamin the meal-bin.

Resonance for Heaney

Helmeted - simplistic (child's view)

senseshoneyed --> noun converted to verb

move from inside to outside

nostalgiasenses --> visual + aural

The door sends out it's shape in heat - child's view

Change in tense (increases impact - makes what he's describing more immediate)

unromanticised

serenity, calm, quiet, bliss, home is a place of peace, no rush, no hurry, no bustle

comes to a conclusion about his past EPIPHANYthis for Heaney, encapsulates love on every level (can be found in the ordinary, even though it's not visible it's still shining)
