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.
