Nuair a d'éag Parnell choinnigh Katherine O'Shea na dánta a scríobh sé chuici. Ní raibh ord ná dáta orthu ach ar a léamh is follas gur aonad iad as an ríocht ina raibh siad, an-áthas agus a gcuid éadóchais leis. Bhuaigh leagan den saothar seo duais i gcomórtas liteartha Oireachtas na Gaeilge 1990, agus ghnóthaigh a fhormhór duais na filíochta ag Seachtain na Scríbhneoirí, Lios Tuathail 1991. After Parnell's death, Katherine kept the poems he had sent her. They were undated and not in order, but they form a unit as they are, out of joy or despair. A version of this work won a literary competition in the 1990 Oireachtas, and part of it won the author the Poetry Prize in the Listowel Writers' Week, 1991.
