12th July 2022
To honour Her Majesty the Queen on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee in 2022, the British Luxembourg Society ran a poetry competition.
The theme was “Celebration”, its interpretation was up to the poet.
Here is a selection of the excellent poems entered - some were read by their authors at the July 12 celebration hosted by the British Ambassador.
Celebration by Sophie Norman
Vivid green and velvet yellow
Burst forth from the sapling's arching limbs
Fed by the earth, illuminated by the stars
I stare in wonder as life becomes
Breeze flickers, light abounds
Lub dub heartbeat in the rhythm
Free to breathe, free to roam
Life is the truest celebration
