First Year students of Christian Brothers College have demonstrated their talented creative skills by penning Valentine's poems for a competition run by Easons.
The boys were tasked to create poems centring on the fitting theme of love and what it means to them.
Martina Walsh of Easons said she appreciates the great sense of humour and the display of empathy that the boys clearly show through their poems and in how they express their opinions and impressions of 'love'.
The students demonstrated wide and inclusive views in the poems they wrote, depicting love as coming from and towards all family members, friends, sports and even their favourite food.
Ms Walsh stated that Easons on Patrick Street were delighted to support the Christian Brothers College poetry competition that seeks to nurture creativity and support writing skills.
Some poetic excerpts from the boys included:
No one is too cool enough for love
Even God in heavens above
Love is a handshake after a game
It is never lame ****
Love is not just a word it’s a feeling
God helps us keep it
Some people don’t feel it
Sometimes even the same gender
Love comes in all sizes
Which size is yours?
People say it comes in all different shapes and sizes
But really it only comes in one,
Which is everyone loving each other
Love is when I see a rainbow in the sky
Or when I eat some apple pie
Easons congratulates the boys on a great effort while Principal David Lordon believes in creating quality learning opportunities for the boys and in introducing students to real commercial avenues for their creative writing abilities.
