Poems for Ghana by Corfe Hills Laureates

Jess, Gina, Heather, Kat and Beth met to write a poem for Ghana and it was sent with Mrs Borley on her visit. We can't wait to hear how it was recieved.

We were inspired by this painting:

Rippling water,
Clashing pots,
Singing to herself.
She catches a smell
Of the village,
Out of sight,
Cooking smoke.

Taste of heat, dust of a hundred dry days
Light dances on the water
Sparse grass thrusting from sun-baked ground.

Children run free, singing songs in the wind.
New river in the Wadi.
