|Mornings at McDonnell’s by Katherine
Russell Barnes 36 page perfect bound $9.95 + $1.50 S&H is a collection
of the subsequent poems based on the observations of the author - moments
in the lives of people who came in for a quick bite of breakfast and then
went about the business of the day - moments that reveal our universal
human nature and how we respond to others. The author’s habits have changed,
but when she read these poems, she hears the morning clatter and smell
the coffee. To order your copy, send check or money order to: Katherine
