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.
And the warmth of
last night’s moonlight
slowly filters out
through half-closed blinds.
Matthew Birch, aged 18, Lewisham
