Spring poetry

My amazing Daughter Kate entered some of her poetry in the spring poetry competition run by the The South Australian Teachers' Association. She had one accepted. We were invited to the launch of the book, and presentation of awards (given to some of the Students). Each person who had a poem in the book received a copy. Here is a copy Kates Poem.


Sadly crying softly
She cowered on the floor
Feeling so abjectly
Her life would be no more

Cancer, starting slowly
Was taking over life
Making her feel lowly
And filling life with strife

No money for her mend
No shelter from the storms
No family or friend
Danger in many forms

Life was slowly ending
With tears, sorrow and pain
The world, uncomprehending
Had left her to the rain
