Check out this outstanding poem by Jacob Birks from Belmont Intermediate. The writer and activist Audrey Lorde said, ‘Poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence.’ Poems like Jacob’s prove this point. Well done Jacob. We hope to see more of your work!
Here’s one of my favourite poems of the year. I particularly like the line, ‘even the ant steals’. It was written by Saskia Nyhoff from Belmont Intermediate. Well done Saskia!
Here’s a stunning poem by Selena Wang. See if you can spot the wonderful metaphor in the first stanza (that’s the name for a paragraph in a poem). It will create a lovely image in your head!
