Pasties and cream!

Pasties and cream!

My new pair of jeans has just burst at the seam!

The Cornish Reading Challenge is all about fun. Choose a book (or two!), and get lost in a world of sweeping landscapes; a world in equal parts beautiful and harsh. Cornish author Sharon Tregenza has shared some poems with us in honour of this challenge. Read and enjoy!

SEAGULL

I fed a giant seagull.

A fatly-feathered chap.

He flew over my window-

and said his thank you’s.

SPLAT!

 

ST MICHAEL’S MOUNT

We

couldn’t

walk to the

Mount, on account,

of the tide wasn’t out.

 

ROCKPOOLS

Treasure filled rock pools

of emerald and ruby

anenome studded and musseled

within.

 

Anxious small bodies

salt prone on black boulders,

waiting for bull-cat with baited

bent pin.

 

Water washed shingle

sieved fine through small fingers,

pebble sea dashed and sucked clean

by the sea.

 

Trawlermen salty

and sequined with fish-scales

watching white surf sugar coating

the quay.
