    "and her head shakes
    when she laughs. "

    What a beautiful ending, Jane. Is this about you? I like it. I'm a bit of a monkey woman myself, in both action and appearance.

    I interpreted this as being about abby during the contest.

    The last stanza is loooovely. I loved all the wildlife imagery, with different animals showing different sides of a personality. But those last few lines were just perfect, and elevated the poem.

    Hear hear young birthday girl... i think there's a bit of both you and Abby in this truth be known... and yes great ending, but thats already noted in a more eloquent fashion than I, so just let me say

    I definitely see Abby throughout this poem, but also a lot of yourself, Jane:

    "They marked her a heroine;
    a silver-tongued rebel with
    words like daggers at her belt. "

    That's just.. you. ;)

    This is pretty interesting, definitely unlike anything I've ever read. Don't know how you do it, lady.

    I think this poem shows how alike we think we are to one another. Others seem to agree.

    I feel honoured by this unique and frank depiction, thank you Janey. Trust me to nominate a poem about me.

    A great poem,
    I liked the imagery and it seems to fit well to Abby,
    a lovely way to describe a great poetess,
    what a brilliant ending too

    Love,

    Enticing poem Janey, I very much enjoyed the read. Good title and great first line. I am sure I would be like a beast and I do see the sly red fox. Your poem aroused all my senses execpt I could not smell that musky Monkey woman.
    Peace and Blessings
