Lockdown – it gives us poetry

It’s time to enjoy the last poems of the school year, from young Didcot Girls’ School Poet Laureates Keira Mason (year 8) and Iris Rogers (year 11).

These two have learned a lot this year and it’s been special for me to mentor them in their poetry. Mentoring is always a two-way street and I’ve come away richer, thanks to the two of them.

Lockdown has brought with it so much, a lot of it tangled and constricting, but it’s also made us look outwards at the world, a little bit more. I think these two poems reflect this.

Do please share and enjoy them.
