Child of the Universe is the poet's second collection of poems, numbered 103, 158, and 290 through 552, written 2006 - 2012. Most of the poems are in English, but some are in Spanish or French. The poetry has been compared to that of Emily Dickinson, and the poet is believed by some who work with past-life regression to be the reincarnation of Emily Dickinson. "... a lovely collection of poems written in the style of Emily Dickinson. Ms. deMerle has a marvelous way of bringing the world to life. She touches our emotions with color and life, sometimes making us ponder our views and those of society while invoking our senses and mind. As she states: 'We, like all living creatures, are all children of the Universe, and like many, I am a child of the verse.' And in Child Of The Universe, this would sum up the passionate journey one takes in this book."-Marta Moran-Bishop Author's Note: "I began writing poetry in my dreams when I was about 14 years old. Eventually, I would wake up as I was writing, and finally I learned to write while conscious ... I don't presume to know whence some of these thoughts arise, but I feel safe in saying they come from the unconscious ... I write to express deep emotions, sort out what disturbs me, and express moments of peace and clarity."
