SIXTH YEAR POETRY
Having read "The Chronicle", by David Wheatley, which refers a visit to his grandfather's grave. The 6th year students from Colaiste Eoin decided to visit the graveyard and see if the grave was there. The students located the tombstone and felt it made the poem more realistic. The poem is technically very beautiful written in sestina form. The deliberate and carefully constructed poem is juxtaposed against the wild Wicklow countryside.
