    Donall thankyou so much for all your poems! They are treasures, one and all and their author a rare and gifted soul.

    Dónall is the answer to a prayer I never offered up, maiden or not, and he has given reality to dreams that I never knew I'd had. He is poetry personified and his work is as passionate, sincere imaginative and honest as he is himself. I love him.

    Ireland in its hour of need could do with yet another blinkin' winker!

    Back with a few new pieces, talk later.

    An Eccentric Love Pilgrim on a long journey, composing wonderful poems...

    If a man can get to heaven, just by having the kindest, most loving heart in the world, then my dearest friend, Donall Donall (the double dip Irishman!) has it made.
    His very soul is just pure, shining love, and his poetry reflects his warm heart. Love poetry will never be the same, because of his unusual outlook on life and love,
    but WOW, is he one awesome writer! You bet! !

    It was so lovely to meet you, Donall. I have read your poetry and it is beautiful. But having seen the way you bring it to life in a three-dimensional sort of way, taking the listener right into the scenarios as if you were performing vivid and colourful one-man plays I will no longer 'read' your poems but 'live' them. Keep on flowing.....

    734 poems. Crikey. I didn't know you'd been so busy. I have 60, that cause me limited squirming.

    A very nice and kind hearted man. He gives people a chance even when you feel like you have no where else to turn. Has writen some truely amazing poems. He made me smile even when i was in deep despair. He was the light behind the big thick black cloud. all in all a great man. hope to keep in contact with him.

    Take Care

    Love Frankie

    Scarlett turned me on to your work and all I have to say is thank you. Your work is a joy to read.

Best Poem of Dónall Dempsey

The Very Naked Name Of Love

Love, has robbed you
of your clothes

except for high high heels
pearls & long elegant gloves.

Love pauses us at this
ridiculous stage

holds us in this
dressed/undressed pose

me almost naked
except for my wristwatch

ticking as madly as a heart

as we fall & laugh

& your pearls become
unstrung & one by one

dance across the linoleum

like an untalented tap dance act
that doesn’t stand a chance at an audition

and you smile & kiss me & whisper:

“Perdition...alas I am
undone, sir! ”

Time Was

she perches

upon wave
upon wave

of rock as if
a frozen sea

caught forever
in this

instant of seeing as
sunset silhouettes her

she lost
in time

her mind
touching the horizon

that only
a single seagull

dances above

hewn from an evening
made from memory.
