I Form Poetry

There were also plenty of First Form entrants for the Junior Poetry Prize - click here for poems by Angus Johnson, Tyrone Langham, Aoife Gernon, Oyindamola Onabanjo, Michael Kemp, Tom Crampton, Jack Cherry, Lorcan Maule, Shannon Keogan, Eochy O'Conor, Rabindranath Sheeran and Bronwyn Mallon.

This is Angus Johnson's ''Beach Scene" :

As I walk onto the beach
My feet get burned
By the heat of the sand.

I sit down and the noise
Of distant children
Whispers through my ears.

The whisper too of sandcastles
As the whooshing sea
Begins to flatten them.
