Does anybody know which poet Causley is referring to in this poem?

According to the notes in the Penguin anthology 'Worlds', it's about Louis MacNiece.
That's interesting. I've got the poem in a Causley collection, I had no idea it was about MacNeice. I wonder if the 'parson boomed' line is referencing MacNeice's father making the 'walls resound'.
