Xanthe sent me in my favourite poem for this challenge. She has played with a French word (parapluie), but has also played with how the poem looks on the page. I love the way she has made her poem in the shape of an umbrella. The poem itself is like a little nursery rhyme! I enjoyed this poem very much Xanthe and hope she sends in more poems to Poetry Box. Thanks to Gecko Press, she will get a copy of the book below. Congratulations Xanthe!
