Tara is the most compassionate, intelligent, witty, warm and eloquent poet I've had the good fortune to meet on PH! Her words never fail to amaze and entertain me, anyone who has had the good chance to meet her will see (and know) why what she writes permeates... right through to the heart. Bless you Tara - you're brill! HG: -) xx

I refer to Alison's comments below. Not because I am particularly lazy today but because she said it so well. For quite some time I have had many occasions when a word or two from Tara have lifted my spirits, warmed my heart so to speak. She is one of the loveliest people I have come across, even judging from this great distance. Lucky man who gets to share her time and space. And her poetry is superb precisely because of who she is. There is a soul in that lovely lady that offers to hug and be hugged and I would be standing in line at dawn with the intent of sneaking in a kiss to the sternocleidomastoid as well. Love, H

Maybe her secret is by being herself, real and true! Regards.

Who? Oh yeah! The woman I love! I'm afraid I cannot tell you the secret of Tara's poetry. I've been sworn to secrecy! She is, by far, the most wonderful woman in too many ways to list. Ez

I love Tara's poetry, all of her work is a work of art, she manages to pull off the trick of playing her words so cleverly. Always sincere, always sharp and alwayes direct. There is a certain truth to her poetry that has you going back for more. Her words always flow so smoothly.... like water over stone.... A truly shining star in the poet land known as PoemHunter. HG: -) xx

A fearless and honest, high quality poet who tackles a wide variety of difficult and obscure issues as well as the roads well travelled, and displays a very high level of intelligence, imagination, wisdom and artistry in the process. A major asset to Poem Hunter. xx jim

Tara McHale's poetry shines. It flows directly from her soul. It is distinctive and personal - with an easy flow that is always satisfying. She is a highly intelligent writer and clever without being pretentious. She is also one of the most beautiful people I know with a wicked sense of humour and an emotional fortitude that amazes. She has given me leonine poetic and personal support and encouragement since I joined this site and I adore her. love, AAA (Agony Aunt Allie) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Tara embodies everything I respect in a female poet. In fact, scrap that, in a poet full stop. Ballsy, witty, intelligent, honest and above all, hugely talented. I can't wait to walk past Waterstones and see one of your books in the window. And sorry for going all Rikki Lake, but - you go girlfriend! Hugs Anna xxx

Just occasionally, you / I find a writer and instantly know you'll try to read everything they write...because you've met a real mind. They / you have depth of thought, an open heart, self-observation and detachment and humour - and then give all this the delight of flexible metre and rhyme. I'm wondering if eventually you'll be a novelist, Tara, but meanwhile, please accept this tribute of respect in the place of eager comments on all your individual poems with their individual insights...
