The Holmfirth group brought in favourite poems to read aloud, then we had a go at writing our own using a template to get us started. Our idea was to write wishes/hopes for the futures of young children. These have been shared with Holme and Upperthong Schools in the hope that the children there will be able to use them in class and be inspired to write poetry themselves. We would love to hear from anyone else who enjoys our poems. None of our members considered they could write poetry before this…. …Enjoy!
