Hunt the poem

Public | Schools| Community | Hunt the poem

We lost a poem.  The pieces were scattered throughout Edinburgh.  We needed your help to find them and put the poem back together.

“Hunt The Poem” was an exciting treasure hunt running throughout February 2010, as part of the Carry a Poem campaign. A certain poem, a priceless family secret passed down the generations, was broken into twelve lines which lay hidden around the city.

Intrepid clue hunters searched throughout Edinburgh and managed to carry the poem to a safe resting place at the Scottish Poetry Library.
