Michael Walsh graduated from Gilmour Academy, took a B.A. in anthropology from Cleveland State University, and did further course work at John Carroll and Yale Universities.

He was happiest with his rock hammer, kneeling in a creek bed or combing shale cliffs for Paleozoic fossils. He contributed his collections to museums and colleges.

Michael has published over eighty poems in numerous magazines and anthologies, and has read in Ohio, Manhattan, and across Long Island. He was a human rights and animal rights advocate and was interested in the intertwine of psyche. He felt we lived in a small world without room for expansion and we needed to get along.

Michael lived in Rocky Point and was active in the East End Poetry Workshop.

July Featured Poem For The Peregrine Muse-Treasure?

Happy to share more good news from The Peregrine Muse

"Treasure?" is the featured poem for July 2015 via David Evans, Feature Editor

https://sites.google.com/site/theperegrinemuseii/

by Patricia Carragon Treasure? What can be said of something Buried in this nameless alley, When it was once treasured, Given out of love? Or can love be measured, When the past is rejected - Sleeps in filth, alone and neglected? What can be said of a memory
 When it was there to serve its owner? 
Was it witness to sadness or happiness? 
Was it cherished for its unique design
 Or did it lose its value under duress,
 When time grew tired of its use
 And dumped it out of casual abuse? What can be said of myself 
Seen within this ragged treasure?
 Am I a common thread, forgotten, 
Inside seams and buttonholes,
 With memories stale and rotten -
 Or a recycled life waiting to begin
 Within washed and mended skin?
