"In a sense my poetry is a journal; each effort seeks to stabilise the emotions of a given circumstance, whether the presentation be dramatic or lyric. I have found this facility a powerful resource in times of trouble. Yet another reason to be grateful! In the nature of things the poems treat of many kinds of love, and in this context it is important to realise that love of language is a passion like any other. Writing verse is an addiction, a rewarding one. Perhaps I should leave it at that and trust that so many willing interpreters will have made these points better than I could. Coimrí Dé orthu go léir!"
— Máire Mhac an tSaoi, from the Preface
