    It has everything to do with anything.

    I think it's just fine to leave our your birth year. While understand the natural curiousity to know a poet's age, it's ultimately irrelevant. Anyone who writes a poem like 'Paper Crane' is emotionally very mature. That was one of the best poems I've seen on this site, and is one of only a handful that I've downloaded and saved. Good thing I did too, because I see you removed it - why? ?

    Sorry to be obscure. Just two things: we usually put our year of birth, not just our birthday? And you had written a rather depressed poem. Sometimes it's the actual poet who's writing about themselves, sometimes it's not about them but about someone else. Some young poets seem to be almost suicidal these days. Just hoped that life wasn't that bad for you... michael

    Hi Amy. Creative writers make you care about people who aren't them anyway, but it doesn't matter...sometimes.
    Should we all be rallying round this talented poet who wasn't born in any particular year (immortal? recipe?) with or without bagpipes...?

Best Poem of Amy Murtagh

Farewell Paper Crane

Straying in to stormy weather
Our love was a weather balloon
And when the going got tough
You let go too soon
But I clung on, and sailed into the rain
I made out the other side
Without my paper crane

Farewell my origami sweetheart
It's time for something new
Someone I barely recognise
Something I never saw in you

We’ll learn to be in love again from scratch
In my paper heart
I fold the perfect lines
For our not-so-perfect match

Read the full of Farewell Paper Crane

Farewell Paper Crane

Straying in to stormy weather
Our love was a weather balloon
And when the going got tough
You let go too soon
But I clung on, and sailed into the rain
I made out the other side
Without my paper crane

Farewell my origami sweetheart
