Poetry is a wonderful outlet to let out what’s inside, ease the burden and pain, create a vivid picture of emotions kept far too long. It is Pat’s hope and desire that the reader will enjoy her poems, and the words will be inspiring and uplifting. It is an expression of what one feels.

From poet Pat Morrell comes four books of poems that echo the sentiments of her heart, giving the readers something that they can greatly relate to and an abundant source of inspiration to those who seek it.

Pat has written more than 1600 poems. She also has another publication, a book that tells of her journey as a Realtor, including articles and poems that she has published in various magazines over the years.

The Climb Up Life’s Mountain

In The Climb Up Life’s Mountain, Pat Morrell-Donelly’s feelings and thoughts come through in her words and expressions. The poems are written over the years through different challenges, problems, and losses.

One such loss was the devastating death of her mother who was killed by a drunk driver. Her mother was forty-five years of age. At the same time, her father and young sister were critically injured. Then there were the sad events in her life when her sister and only brother passed away due to cancer. There were also the overwhelming business losses and personal problems.

All of these experiences are incorporated in her poetry with vivid imagery and brimming with honest emotions.

These one hundred twenty two poems were selected from over 1600 poems she has written.

Poems For Conservatives Published in 2010

Poems For Conservatives contains poems mostly in the political vein, most written the last couple of years as radicalism in Washington D. C. has shown it’s face in such a devastating manner.

These poems reveal Pat’s belief that this great country is being taken down a dangerous path, and needs to be stopped. It’s her opinion that if those presently in charge can get rid of the seniors through a Government run health care system that withholds valuable drugs and care and sends them to an early grave, they would have an open field to indoctrinate our youth who then would never know the great country previous generations have been privileged to know.

My Journey As A Realtor

This is a book about the life and experiences of Pat Morrell as a Realtor, and a real estate broker. On her long journey she spent over fifty one years in the real estate industry as an active agent.

She traveled through many valleys and over many mountains, experiencing challenges, losses, and trying times. It required faith, determination, and persistence. There were constant, new experiences, and changes in the “market,” and the paper work requirement.

Inspirational and thought-provoking, her poems and articles will motivate many readers.


This book of poems is all about honoring God, family, friends and country. It is very personal, but Pat hopes readers will relate to the thoughts in her poems. It is an attempt to pay homage to those that have touched her life in their own special, unique way.

Pat states, “For those of us that had loving parents, loving families, and lifetime friends we have been greatly blessed. And to have been born into an exceptional country like the U.S.A., even as a child of the depression, knowing struggles and adversities, we still have been doubly blessed.” She says, “Trials and challenges only made us stronger. We believed if we wanted anything monetarily we had to work for it. We never thought of relying on the government.”

Thoughts in these poems come from difficulties and challenges and losses experienced while traveling her life’s journey, and hopefully they will touch the reader’s in a way to better equip them to face their own challenges and adversities.

Poetry Breathes Life Into Bible Characters

Pat’s fifth book is a book of poems based on the lives of people in the Bible. She hopes these Bible poems will in some way bring to life information about each person, their faith, their strength, and for some, their failings.

Just wherever the spirit has led her has been her way.

She does not profess to be a Bible scholar. Her aim and hope is to use any talent she possesses to glorify God.

She didn’t start out with a plan about which person she would write about first. In the beginning, it was going to be about lives of women in the Bible, then it branched out to the men also.

Many times she would hear a sermon or her sister or a friend would mention a Bible person, and she would then write a poem about that person.

Or when writing about a particular person, she would then feel compelled to write about their spouse or someone connected to them.

Her information was collected from the Bible and other sources.

To make the verses all rhyme and still tell the story was another challenge. Her hope was to make it more interesting for a novice or for young people to understand.

Many in this country have turned their backs on God. We have even been told, “This is not a Christian nation.”

Believers in God have made this country great. Millions of lives have been sacrificed for our freedom. Sadly, as in the book of Jeremiah, we have become a divided country.

Pat believes only if we turn back to God will our country remain great and free.

May the pleasure of reading these poems about lives of people in the Bible bless each reader and bring to life the story of each Bible character.
