Poetry Success

BUDDING poet Tiana De Zoit has kicked off a writing career with the publication of her first poem. Seven-year-old Tiana, who is in Year 2 at Brandon State School, was a third place winner in a nationwide poetry competition for her poem "I Love the Beach". Over 9500 entries were received for the ‘Write4Fun’ competition. Tiana and the other winners were all published in a book called "Simply Poetry". The De Zoit family donated a copy of the book to the Brandon school library. Tiana also won first place on the 7-years and under poetry section at the recent Burdekin District Junior Eisteddfod. 

I Love the Beach By Tiana De Zoit, Grade 2 Brandon State School 

At the beach it’s so much fun 
When I'm in the water and when I run.
At the beach you run and jump waves 
And you can go in the water caves. 
I like it when I find fish scales and shells 
And butterflies and sloppy water wells.
