‘Judith’ by Vicki Feaver


by Vicki FeaverDSCF2939

“Wondering how a good woman can murder
I enter the tent of Holofernes
holding in one hand his long oiled hair
and in the other, raised above
his sleeping, wine-flushed face,
his falchion with its unsheathed
curved blade. And I feel a rush…”

Congratulations to Maya of Caterham School for winning the Surrey County Contest of Poetry By Heart. She performed this poem as well as George Meredith’s Lucifer in Starlight.

Runner up was William of Charterhouse School, with a special commendation for Bobby of Sunnydown School.
