Having No Memory

The Governor’s Academy had fifteen students who garnered nineteen writing awards in the 2013 Boston Globe Scholastic Art & Writing Awards (lean more about the art award winners here). The students won twice as many awards this year as last.

Below is a poem that garnered an Honorable Mention. A full list of winners can be found here.

Having No Memory 
Jie-Ling Ngo ’15

When summer dream tickles your lips lightly

And vibrant hues glow amid trees today,

Late sunset shall love you wholly nightly

As sea breeze lingers against your body.

Nothing retains this rose passion foregone

Till his heart trembles for the Godly hopes;

Faith simmers under dying sunshine bonds

The sands of time shall tell you in scope.

Vowed to stay loyal till dawn settles in

But bitter lies left pure sorrow untold—

When he fled like sea breeze stinging within,

No such memory lay for faith bore cold.

To trust and to trust is to learn friction,

To know and to know is all but fiction.
