Kerry won at Senior and District sections. Then went on to take 2nd at National Level. She accepted her certificate, trophy and vouchers from Rotary President, Martin Greaves and Youth Lead Bob Roberts.
The judge said of Kerry’s 8 line poem, “Poetry, does tend to force concentration, so there is more in those lines than appears at first sight. I particularly like the way that the writer turned the title on its head, almost berating the organisers for picking a title that devalues every other day. In these eight lines, there is a philosophy of life. The poem meets other technical criteria, there are no clichés, few wasted words and excellent use of vocabulary.”
Well done Kerry!
