Poetry contest

Poetry is often a source of solace in difficult times – both reading it and writing it. John Parkinson, Paul Stephenson and Sally Wyatt have made a start, with a quatrain and a limerick (see below). But feel free to turn your hand to sonnets, haiku, odes, or whatever form works for you.

Please send your entries to Sally Wyatt. We’ll include one here every week. Once this is over, prizes will be awarded at our next physical FASoS get-together.

This week ‘zoom’ was on our minds, but there are many other aspects of the situation we are all facing that might lend themselves to verse.


I Zoom in

And I Zoom out

But can I really focus?

By Paul Stephenson


There once was a tutor on Zoom

Who tried to teach Rousseau and Hume

They then read the terms

And rules about germs

And hoped not to descend into gloom

by John Parkinson & Sally Wyatt
