Her House

HER HOUSE AND OTHER POEMS is a culmination of fine observation. Donna Marie Merritt reflects on those details that so often pass by undetected, yet play an enormous part in our lives. Along the way we examine our fragile bargain with nature—and how close we are to chaos when nature reminds us just who is in charge. Long countryside walks, a good glass of wine, family and friends, growing older…all these Merritt celebrates with gratitude in her fourth poetry collection, prompting us to truly see what surrounds us, reminding us that memory is precious and sweet.

“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.” ~David Kherdian: Poet, Novelist, Author of Gatherings: Selected and Uncollected Writings (Tavnon Books, 2011)

“HER HOUSE is filled with delicious morsels for the poetic palate.” ~Dave Morrison, Poet, Author of Fail (2012)
