The poem Andrew carries is ‘Epitaph on Robert Southey’ by Thomas Moore – he especially likes the line:

Beneath these buried deep

Darren has chosen Edwin Arlington Robinson’s ‘Miniver Cheevy’:

Miniver cursed the Common place And eyed a Khaki suit with loathing;

he missed the medieval grace of iron cloathing.

Lori has written in to say she has chosen ‘Daffodils’ and it is written by William Wordsworth. She likes these lines:

The waves beside them danced

but they out-did the sparkling waves in glee,

because they are very creative and very thoughtful words.

Andrew’ s favourite poem is Douglas Dunn’s ‘Men of Terry Street.’ His favourite 2 lines are:

I hear their foot steps the ticking of bicycle chains sudden blasts of motorcycles,whimpering of vans.

He likes this poem because its got a lot to do with motorbikes and cars – also it very dramatic.

Andrew, Lori, Darren and Paul are all pupils at South Queensferry High School.
