A Poem To Remember

Thanks to Alyson Hilbourne for sending me the info about two free to enter poetry competitions. 

The Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre are looking for 'poetry that honours those affected by service and pays tribute to humankind's capacity to cope with adversity. '

The prize includes having the poem read by HRH The Duke of Cambridge and being 'displayed prominently in perpetuity at the Centre.' Oh and £2,000 for first prize and four other prizes of £500.

You're tempted, aren't you?

The second is this one. I really can't imagine why Alyson thought of me when she saw it.

Thanks for sharing, and might have a go. The prize money is tempting.

I hope some of them enter, Maria.

Patsy said...

That's possible, Oscar. Quite likely in fact.

Patsy said...

I'm sure they would, Mac.

Thanks, Nas.
