    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

A Lunar Betrayal

The animals tumble
A fall from their cradle, from
Their rest in the crescent of the moon

Twisting in mid air
Talons and teeth
Inconsolable noises of grief
Falling and calling
To mothers and mates
Alpha males and leaders of the herd
Over and over
And without a word
Little creatures tumble

Their fate is bent
On this unstoppable
Downward
Descent

A bump, a thud
They hit the ground
Wails, yelps, groans
All manners of sounds
Whimpers, murmurs
They anticipate death
Fur and feathers heave
In a united ...
