The response was most active in the poetry division. The prose has been submitted by Mrs. J.IVI. Douglas from senior school essays. Our thanks to Mrs. J.M. Douglas and Mrs. E. Douglas who so kindly judged the entries and our congratu- lations to the winners. It has been my pleasure to be in charge of the literary department. Susan Mitchell Literary Committee Chairman. FIRST PRIZE (Poetry) THE UNBORN by Jan Sinclair iVIy tiny child; sweet innocence All hushed and peacefully conceived within my wonnb, What fate will rule your presence here amongst mankind? You patiently await that moment of your first breath of life; But, papa and I weep sorrowfully. You are made like one of us and fate has already Set the pattern for your life. We are but living symbols of unworthiness. Never freely to pace this earth; to breathe the air; To feel the sun; to know fraternity. Always, we must bitterly defend the right to go on living. Life, for us, is wrought with fear and overwhelming hatred. For we are black and condemned to hell - ■ Our God lies fallen, cold and dead! 36

SECOND PR IZE (Poetry) PRIDE by Susan Mitchell Wounded, crawling like the stricken prey To hide himself and hidden, to lie forever In uncaptured peace but dead. When he lived, he knew no bounds: The world was his; he came And went like the four winds; He ran and sported with the other creatures of the mind Until that final race, when matched by some unencountered being. He turned and ran. Dodging, fleeing, seeking, the hunter ' s arrow Found him but on he fled, stumbling Over footfalls of existence To drop exhausted, bleeding at the threshold of despair In a last desperate effort to hide. That no one should say Love had conquered Pride. DAWN by Pam Taraday The world is very friendly; or do I face a cry Alone in the empty darkness; or was it a sigh That penetrates the soul; or could it be a tear So soft that no one knows the pain; or was it fear And hate, that no one understands? The world is full of grief Not just to some, but to everyone, beyond belief. The world is very friendly; or do we face a cry Together in the golden dawning; or was it a sigh Deep within the heart of joy and fulfilment; or could it be a tear Of happiness amid wonder; or was it fear Or love, that few men find? The world is very kind Not just to some, but to everyone, to all mankind. 37
