“Here we have an eye open to the world, that poem by poem brings that world into view for all to see, and to be nurtured by.”

“I get a marvellous sense of Merritt – I feel as if I know her.”
Della Collins Cook.
“Donna Marie Merritt’s new collection begs to be read aloud – these poems are not just treats for the mind and heart, but for the tongue as well. There is an energetic tumbling of rhythm and rhyme, playful observations of nature, moments of deep comfort and passion, and the ongoing loving struggle of capturing feelings with words. Her House is filled with delicious morsels for the poetic palate.”
Dave Morrison: Poet; Author of eight poetry collections, including Fail (2012)
