    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...

  • Scarlett Treat (12/3/2007 3:40:00 PM)

    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! !

  • Francesca Johnson (9/23/2007 5:21:00 PM)

    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.


Best Poem of Dónall Dempsey

' ' ' ' Daddy(For My Dad)

your love

around me

tangible & intangible

as when
becomes music.

As a child
they asked me

what I wanted
to be

when I grew up

and I ran through
all the obvious choices

a cowboy man
a doctor man
a spy man
a hero man
an astronaut man

but there was
always only

one choice.

I wanted to be

So I blurted out
my child's answer:

'A Daddy! '

The adults laughed
not knowing how serious
I was.

I wanted to be
the ...

Read the full of ' ' ' ' Daddy(For My Dad)

The Last Laugh

So much fun.

You always were the lively one.

Here, on this hillside falling down to a river
here, in this windy weather we gather together

Dearly Beloved
