Two Poems by Finn Pearce

Finn Pearce (age 8)


Alive they terrorise.
But in rubble …
They’re no trouble.

My shadow goes to China in autumn
My shadow goes to Fiji in May
But it only travels by night
Because it’s with me at day.

from 2016 Rattle Young Poets Anthology


Finn Pearce: “I like to write poetry because it can weave a tale and make the simple stunning.”
