    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 Way The Story Goes

Always enchantments
falling from your lips.

made real

made from the nearness
of your breath...a kiss.
