Matthew Birch – Untitled

the warmth of last night’s moonlight

Many thanks to Matthew Birch for entering our competition. Matthew is a talented poet who was highly commended in both the Foyle’s Young Poet of the Year Award and the University of Lincoln Armistice 100 competition. Daniel explains that his poems are an ’emotional response’ to his experiences. We are very grateful for his decision to share his talent with us.

“I think



mhmm.”

And the warmth of

last night’s moonlight

slowly filters out

through half-closed blinds.

Matthew Birch, aged 18, Lewisham
