Our poetry competition was a great success. We had over 40 entries out of which we had to pick one. It was not an easy decision to make. Here is the winning poem as promised. It was written by Kyle age 15.
You’re always there when I need you,
Almost as much as a foot needs a shoe,
Let’s be honest, you will always be my best friend,
I will always love you to the end,
We love to fight, then it turns into a scrap,
We both know I must learn when to shut my trap,
Like a puppy loves to chew,
Don’t forget I really love you,
You will always be my favourite woman in my life,
Yes, even more than my future wife,
As Mother’s day comes around,
I send you all my love,
I thank you for all your help,
You’re my mother sent from above,
It’s about time this poem comes to an end,
Don’t worry, my love will never descend.
Love from Kyle
And here are the flowers, chocolates and original poem in the card which were hand delivered to the lucky mum this morning.
Just For Mum – Write a Heartfelt Poem For Mother’s Day
With Mother’s Day on the 30th March, Kip McGrath Luton South is launching it’s ‘Just For Mum’ poetry competition. Writing a poem for mum (or mother figure) not only encourages creativity and develops writing skills, it produces an original, heartfelt poem that Mum is sure to adore!
To take part, get your child to write a poem in celebration of their mother or mother figure, because a mum can come in many forms. It could be a step-mum, grandmother or female figure who has always supported your child. What would your child like to say to her?
We will select one winner who will win a luxury bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates to be sent to a person of their choice. The winning poem will also be published on this blog. Simply email or post your child’s poem to us by the 27th March 2014. Please remember to include your child’s name, age and postal address on their poem!
If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us an email or give us as call.
