'Secret' by Louise C.Callaghan

Our Poem of the Week (coinciding with World Book Day tomorrow) is Louise C. Callaghan's 'Secret'. Tomorrow Louise is our guest poet, and will be reading to V, IV, and III forms (a pupil will be reporting for us). 'Secret' is from her collection Remember the Birds, which can be bought online from her publisher, Salmon Poetry, here, as can her previous collection, The Puzzle Heart.

Read an extract from 'Secret' here (the full poem is being posted around the school). It speaks of how 'a few words' can 'spark, flare / in the dark'. Entries for our poetry prizes are due by the end of term, and we hope many of them will show 'the urge to understand, / be personal too.'
