Extracts from poems

* Everyone loves you by Andrew Dobbie

Everyone finds you pleasing.

Who taught you how to flirt?

I suppose you'll still be teasing

When I'm digging up the dirt.

* A secret place by Susan Yaffe

As dark fell they oved away

From their secret place.

Already they felt it was being taken over

By small animals of the wood.

* Boy by Lisa Smith

The boy sits

Face blank, eyes hollow, A tear falls, Scared lips tremble.
