From the cover: “Welcome to our first anthology of verse specifically for children and young adults. This came about as a direct result of a competition open to schools and we sincerely thank teachers and parents for their enthusiasm and for helping to make the competition and the anthology such a success. Most of the poems that appear within these pages are from young poets whose work is appearing in print for the first time and for many we are sure it will not be the last. The competition was open to all ages and abilities and for some of the contributors an extraordinary effort was required simply to submit an entry. The comments made by their teachers has been most rewarding to all concerned at Poetry In Print. Theories of what a poem should be are only of minor importance here. It is more important that the student has taken the time to write something, perhaps loosely poetic, but interesting and often unique. The editors have truly enjoyed putting this anthology together. The poems are written with such honesty and openness, coupled with a lively imagination and expression that can only come from young minds.”
