Leah’s prize poem

It was so exciting last week to learn that Leah from the Manor Field Primary after school club has won a prize for her poem, How Would I Remember?

How would I remember?

If I were you, I would want to be remembered

If I were you, I would still want to be loved

If I were you, I would still want to be kept in your heart.

 

If I weren’t to clean your grave, how would I remember you?

If I weren’t to pray, how would I remember you?

If I weren’t to give offerings, celebrate and decorate

how would I remember you?

 

If I weren’t to have this day

how would I remember you?

 

 

The poem was entered by her school into a national competition organised by Young Writers called Once Upon a Dream.

The competition was intense but the poem will now be included in anthology of all the successful poems from children in Sussex, which will be published in June.

Congratulations Leah – we are so proud of you!
