Winter 2011 poetry comp: THE WINNERS (Part 2)

Here is the winning Under 9s story from our winter 2011 writing competition. You were asked to imagine waking up one morning to find you had grown wings—and to write a poem about it.

A reminder: always check the rules of the competition. If you don’t stick to the rules, we have to disqualify your entry and that makes us sad!

Under 9s winner: M Watervoort (WA)

SURPRISE

The sun slapped my face
It gave me a fright.
Morning was here
Gone was the night.
I looked in the mirror
I turned my back
And what I saw
Gave me an attack!
Wings! Wings!
All on my back.
Six pairs of them.
What a six pack!
