Zach Perkins - 2017

As I wander thoughtfully along

the winding path that

leads me through my mind, I stop.

 

One memory stands out among

the rest, one memory that I

will hold onto forever . . . 

The memory of the Bardd chair!

 

I remember the moment when

I won the chair; the cheering,

the clapping, the laughing.

Although this chair may be

small, remember, it is unique,

it is proud, it is powerful.

 

It's someone else's turn to win

the Bardd chair now, but I can

still hold on to the memory it

has given me!
