Poetry Contest

2021 Winner

Congratulations to Donna Rodrigues, winner of our 2021 Fall River Public Library Poetry Contest!

Family Memories

Here is her winning poem.

Memories make time stand still

Yet it goes on forever

Dad's faith and humor kept us strong

Mom's wit was oh so clever


It seems like only yesterday

That you were by our side

Life has never been the same

And it's a rocky ride


But when I look over at my kids

I realize you're here

Deep in their eyes I see your souls

Your influence is clear


Thank you to everyone who entered our contest! We hope to make this an annual event.

The poetry contest was held during the month of April, 2021 (National Poetry Month.) If you enjoy reading poetry, check out a poetry book from the library!
