QAN poet wins prize

News 0 Comments

Congratulations to Dorothy Jerrome whose poem about the shrill carder bee (written at Lucy Aprhamor’s Swarthmoor workshop in July) has just won first prize in a competition held by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust .

Here it is:

In the twinkling of an eye

She darts from purple lavender to mint

High pitched buzz of the

Shrill carder bee

Tawny back, black eyes

Homing in on sweet treats

Mist of blue uninterrupted bliss

The only other sound

My indrawn breath.
