Ms Tagalong had waited many moons to be able to replicate this initiative she had seen in Bridport,Dorset last year and here it was. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed young poets from the local Tighes Hill Primary School took part in the Community Garden Open Day.
It was too hot for the poets to stand and recite in the gardens amongst the veggies and flowers but they stood amongst the watering cans under the pergola and spoke of bugs and butterflies, hummingbirds and bees.
Ms Mova’s favourite from Gus:
Our little garden
Our little garden,
In Tighes Hill,
Not so big,
But not so li’l.
Stephanie showed deep thinking:
Under the wings of a kind heartYou will find a secret.
Do you want to know what secret it is?
The secret of a sparkley butterfly.
So keep your kind hearts, gardeners.
