Editorial Reviews

Review

Marilyn Donnelly has always lived, spoken, and written, with a stunning, indelible, original voice. Her poems, while often brief, plumb great depths of wisdom and wit. Her style of humor sweeps cobwebs and confusion far far away. She reminds me of those haiku masters of the 13th century whom any of us would have been grateful to meet on a trail. Her voice would have saved us then, as she inspires and saves us now. Do not miss her beauty! --Naomi Shihab Nye

Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
Many of Marilyn Donnelly's poems in "Coda" spoke to me, from her heart to mine. My favorites are "Passage" and "Swans."

Format: Perfect Paperback
Both touching and cleverly comedic, Marilyn Donnelly's collection Coda manages to describe daily life and aging with an unflinching yet entertaining lens. While many poems caused me to laugh out loud in their shrewd sense of humor, it was the collection's final section, focusing on the poet's relationship to her husband, that struck me with its delicate beauty and heartbreaking sense of loss: "Let the meadow creatures/Hear us laugh in deep delight/As holding hands we wait/For the coming of the night."
