I Love Ipswich by Mathew O’Neil (5-17 Yrs. Winner)

A wish wosh as the wind blows by
I love Ipswich when I go for a jog
Happiness is soggy socks
And letting the wind blow my hair

Birds chirping and people cheering
As the sunshine and rainbows paint the sky
The parent’s clean and the children learn
As the babies scream out loud

In Ipswich the fire goes out
The crimes get stopped
The zoo gets crowded
The lines get lost in the crowd

In the sky the birds fly beautifully
As the planes soar by
I love the bustle and rustle
The city of Ipswich

Jacaranda by Leonie Parker (Open Age Winner)
