Some of our sixth class students recently entered a poetry contest for the Mountshannon Arts Festival. The winners of the contest were Chantal Zevering and Anù Ní Chuinnieagèin with their poem, Nature Walk, and Zoe Geoghegan with her poem, Wings. Anù, Chantal and Zoe have agreed to let us share their poems on the blog.
I wish I had wings to soar the sky,
to whizz around and learn to fly.
I wish I had wings so I could go,
to places far like Tokyo.
I wish I had wings so I could go and see
all the places I could be.
I wish I had wings to feel free
to fly around and feel like me.
Oh, there’s many reasons why,
if only I could fly.
Walking in the leaves, crunch-crunch-crunch.
The wind blows through the trees, rustle-rustle-rustle.
I hear the bird singing, chirp-chirp-chirp.
The dear run by, swoosh-swoosh-swoosh.
The guns go in the distance, bang-bang-bang.
Raindrops fall from the trees, drip-drip-drip.
I hear the children scream, giggle-giggle-giggle.
I hear people walking, STOMP-STOMP-STOMP.
– Anù and Chantal
The winds are howling
the water is humming
the trees are swaying
the winds are coming
the winds have come and are wrecking havoc
that dreadful day lives were took
The winds have gone without a doubt
but they will remember the winds of the South
