Prep pupil Sylvie has had her poem published in the Live Canon Children’s Anthology 2021. The poems in the anthology were shortlisted for the Live Canon 2021 Children’s Poetry Competition.
Sliver the ripple of silver, slide the shapes coloured gold
Naked scales with diamond patterns, don’t be afraid to run,
but some other little squiggles just stick out their tongue
A log, do you really think? Well, that’s completely wrong, if you look more closely you shall spy a chain of black under its eye
Kingdom of S’s is soon to come
Eager of the adder is trickling of the tongue, a sapling’s smile
is hardly fun
