Student Poetry – Michael Brown

Strawberry fair
(Composed at Midsummer common)

Everyone is so fruity
Colourful characters
We won't be contained by jars
Though some wear lids for hats

Sweet sugary and delicious
We all jam together
A mixed berries of diverse delight
Strawberry fair starts the summer

A parade of all people
Poets and bands dripping treacle
Afternoon balloons high
Candy floss hair and face paint bright glare

Cambridge pace

Mark your arrival
Bicycle bell
Student crime
Library fine

Strolling on the common
Punts stretch out like swans
Rowing rivers of opportunity
Education celebration

Grade 2 listed buildings
Sky high college ceiling
Of philosophy thinking
Bridge of sighs, never lies
