Spring Poetry Contest Winners

Thank you to everybody who took part in our Spring Poetry Contest.

Here are the winners:

5th Place

Sasha, who didn’t give a location, used our Love Poem Generator to create this poem full of rich, springtime imagery.

For a Lovely Spring Flower

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

A lake is lovely,

And so are you.

 

Orchids are white,

Ghost ones are rare,

My world is sunlit,

And so is your hair.

 

Magnolia grows,

With buds like eggs,

The trees are skinny,

And so are your legs.

 

Sunflowers reach,

Up to the skies,

A sunlight is dazzling,

And so are your eyes.

 

Foxgloves in hedges,

Surround the farms,

Your voice is soft,

And so are your arms.

 

Daisies are pretty,

Daffies have style,

Fire is cheery,

And so is your smile.

 

Flowers are beautiful,

Just like you.

4th Place

We love this poem by Kimberly from Crooks in South Dakota, which reminds her of when she went to the Gulf of Mexico in Texas last summer. It was created using our Haiku Generator.

Sun

Burning summertime

A low, windy sun breezes

because of the heat

3rd Place

Another haiku that we love is this one, by Yukukoyamada1 from Traralgon.

Petal

Undisturbed summer

A crimson, sweet petal twirls

whilst watching the street

2nd Place

We enjoyed this haiku by Cole from Eastgate, because it reminded us that whilst spring can sometimes be icy, it is starting to provide hope for many creatures.

Ant

Biting afternoon

A tiny, joyful ant snorts

enjoying the flies

1st Place

Our favourite poem with this haiku by Camila from Frisco:

Waves

Sandy serene beach

A short, beautiful wave falls

into the surfer
