World Space Week winning poem

This year National Poetry Day coincided with the start of World Space Week on 4th October. The National Poetry Day theme was ‘stars’, fitting in perfectly with World Space Week. The school library organised a student poetry competition and many excellent poems were submitted. The following poem was selected as the winner:


I love looking up at you in the black night;

I wonder how you manage to be shining so bright.

From the warmth of my camp fire you seem so high,

Glistening up there in the cool night sky.

You are so silent and beautiful, way up in the dark, distant sky,

As I watch I can see the magic;

Some are still, others can fly.

By Sean, year 7.
