About Mike Walsh
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI am a 60 year old retired Consulting Engineer late of the Northern Territory Australia. I've been lurking around Poetry Sites for about 6 years now, sometimes known as Aunty Myrtle. This pseudonym came about after reading "A Letter To My Aunt Discussing The Correct approach To Modern Poetry" - by Dylan Thomas which ends;

"Take courage, aunt, and send your stuff
To Geoffrey Grigson with my luff,
And may I yet live to admire
How well your poems light the fire." 

Look forward to reading friends old and new here. Keep warm.

    Hi Mike! Auntie Myrtle! How cute is that! Summer is approaching the US, so we are warming by the day. But rather, i would sit by the fire lit of poetry. Hope you enjoy your time here at the Soup, you may find this little brew is rather addicting. Hugs, Catie :)
