Poetry Competition entries sent for judging

We’re delighted to announce that this year’s competition had 113 fabulous entries from local children at Yester Primary and Belhaven Hill School. What creativity we have in our midst! Poems have now been sent off for our judge, Liz Lochhead, to enjoy.

This year, we even had interest from afar…a class at Court Moor School, Fleet, Hampshire sent us a water poem:

What am I?

Drunk by humans
Split by boats
Frozen by weather
Splattered on coats
Priceless to humans
At the bottom of loos
Mixed with teabags
Parted by canoes
Gather on the roadside
Friends with people
Foe to electricity
Sometimes lethal
With the help of evaporation, I fly
What am I?
