Biography of Declan O'Reilly

I always had a love for poetry. Growing up in Ireland poetry was everywhere, it was part of everyday speech. I never liked the fact it was considered high-brow, that it belonged to a certain class and that one had to be well-schooled to understand it. I don't think any poet ever wrote for a certain audience and I definitely do not either. True poetry is universal and its themes are as varied and as unique as we are. That's what makes it so special.

I have had many poems published. Mostly in newspapers but the odd one or two featuring in books. Updates


Keep me in your heart,
Till I or love are gone,
Then let me out
Like a homeless tear,
Upon your cheek,
