Congratulations to Donna Rodrigues, winner of our 2021 Fall River Public Library Poetry Contest!
Here is her winning poem.
Memories make time stand still
Yet it goes on forever
Dad's faith and humor kept us strong
Mom's wit was oh so clever
It seems like only yesterday
That you were by our side
Life has never been the same
And it's a rocky ride
But when I look over at my kids
I realize you're here
Deep in their eyes I see your souls
Your influence is clear
Thank you to everyone who entered our contest! We hope to make this an annual event.
The poetry contest was held during the month of April, 2021 (National Poetry Month.) If you enjoy reading poetry, check out a poetry book from the library!
