Biography of Siona DoyleMcLaughlin
Irish-born and raised in Canada for the most part. Poetry for me is an outlet, and I have no formal training in it. I feel true poetry need not meet some perfect pre-determined, formal format. It is truest when it flows and comes from the heart.
Siona DoyleMcLaughlin Poems
I Love To Walk By The Seashore
I love to walk by the seashore, On the clean white sand so bare, I love to walk by the rippling waves For I find refuge there.
To My Inner Child
Hush little child, Let the tears flow, Yes...the pain is so real, How I know. How I know.
An Apple Can Look Beautiful
An apple can look beautiful With its cherry-red skin, But that skin can only be beautiful If there is a core within.
A little cottage by the sea Oh! A wondrous place to be. A simple structure with wooden walls Beyond the tumbling ocean calls
A Travesty - In Memory Of Du'A Khalil As...
A life so young A journey just begun Like a flower that has only begun to bloom Only to be trampled on and the life snuffed out
A little cottage by the sea
Oh! A wondrous place to be.
A simple structure with wooden walls
Beyond the tumbling ocean calls
Beaded-board and wainscoting white
A well-worn floor from sandals’ delight
Peeling paint and distressed old wood
I wouldn’t change it if I could
Two small beds in corners musty
