Can Earth be Earth?
As the moon’s flare begins the fade,
My leaves stretch up to the sun.
The people come out of the homes they made From the sacrifice of my fellow tree;
A fallen soldier in the forest army.
My arms overburdened in polluted air.
Once others were too, now only I remain. Our planet is dying
Left like a body to rot.
Not even my roots can hold on.
Can Earth be Earth when all its nature is gone?
Charlotte Rundall Y7
Our winner at Bradway Primary is… Elaani Whitehouse
Highly commended at Bradway…
I am the dreadful menace,
The one whose will is done.
I will summon armies of wind and snow. Also I will steal your dreams.
Then I lock them in a safe and never let them out.
I freeze whatever is in my way.
Then beware for I am winter.
I am the joyful winter.
When you children rush out.
You play with me and you throw me all about and
build snowmen out of me.
You catch me on your tongue.
When the sun comes out to play I hide until it Goes away, then I come to play again.
For I am winter.
Elaani Whitehouse Y5
Our winner at Abbey Lane Primary is Mhairi!
Highly commended at Abbey Lane
Our Fragile Planet
The stunning, sturdy trees stood tall,
Yet now they devastatingly fall.
Under the ocean The Great Barrier Reef lay unique,
As quick as a flash it becomes incomplete. Without warning weather is changing madly, And through time we are passing sadly.
In our majestic forest fire is spreading with results devastating,
Just like the plague recreating.
As a result of humans coral is burning,
Also fabulous fish and sea life is hurting. Aiming for crisis tornados are twisting, Disturbing lightning comes from clouds blazing.
Quicker than ever our nature filled climate is changing,
Humans and other animals need saving.
Winners receive a fiction book, as well as a certificate and a copy of the anthology. Highly commended entrants will receive a certificate and a copy of the anthology. These will be available on reception for you to collect!
