Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards 2019

Congratulations to all the students who submitted a poem to enter the 2019 Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards. A special mention to Adele in Year 2 who received a Highly Commended award. All certificates will be sent to students with Semester 2 reports.

Here is one of Adele’s entries:

Broken Hill

A blazing sunset

lights up the red dirt

as willy

                willies

do their last

                swirls.

 

Big

mines

reveal

remarkable

rocks

and touching stories.

 

Strange sights catch your eyes

As emus walk the streets at dusk.

Little bushes reflect the moon

As epic stars begin to shine.
