Giant Redwood - August 2019
Sharafat was "intrigued by this comment of yours on the First Encounters page: 'It would be nice to think that some future writer will be so inspired by the Redwoods we have growing here in the UK.'" and told us that "a poem that my 12-year-old son wrote when he met his first Redwood tree in Redmire Woods on the hillside above the village of Buckden in Yorkshire has been entered for the Ilkley Literature Festival Competition which is due to take place in early October. Itís great to know that these trees can be found all over the country and that they can therefore be a source of beauty, peace and inspiration for so many people. I know that my sonís literary journey with these amazing trees has only just begun and the discovery of your website will no doubt help to accelerate and broaden his field of interest."
I'm pleased to hear that your son has entered his poem into the competition and I hope his enthusiasm and interest in Redwoods continues to grow.
