National Poetry Day

To all you budding poets: how about writing a poem on the theme of light and sending it to Mrs Mayes?

To all you budding poets: how about writing a poem on the theme of light and sending it to Mrs Mayes?

We celebrated National Poetry Day's twenty first birthday by reciting poems, reading poems and watching performances of poems then writing our own. We are running a competition with prizes for winning entries at each Key Stage and one for adults. This year's theme was: light. Here is an inspirational piece by the fourteenth century Persian poet Hafiz:

Even after all this time
The Sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with a love like that...
It lights the whole sky.
