Chloe Clarke snippet

A little bit of verse from Chloe Clarke who performed at the recent Light and Shade event for National Poetry Day with our favourite wordsmith, Heather Wastie.

Carpet People

And what a legacy they left

the sound of the machines are still beating in their blood lines

They kept soldiers warm after years of fighting their own battles in the cold

Fingerprints of their existence

Inked themselves over the whole town, country,

Even world

A museum of memories to encapsulate their years

A shrine to their blood sweat and tears.
