Drawing competition! Friday, 19 February 2010

Posted by carryapoem in Poetry in Edinburgh.

As part of the Carry a Poem campaign the Scottish Centre for the Book at Edinburgh Napier University ran a competition for all Edinburgh primary schools. The competition closed on 27 January, and some of the wonderful submissions are available to view online. Some of the pupils wrote their own poems, in response to Diana Hendry‘s specially commissioned Carry a Poem one!

Here’s one such poem, submitted by Darby at Gilmerton Primary school

You can fold it, you can stuff it
You can put it in your pocket
You can put it in your bag
You can put it in your purse

You can put it in your mind and never say it burst
You can say it, you can see it
You can touch it, you can feel it
You can make it, you can leave it

It could be good it could be bad
It could be happy it could be sad
It could be bright it could be dark
It could be dumb it could be smart.
