Keats-Shelley House Poetry Prize Awarded to St Stephen's Tenth Grade Student Cristina Rizzo!

Congratulations to St Stephen's tenth grader Cristina Rizzo for having won one of the prestigious Keats-Shelley House Poetry Prizes this year in the category Poems in English age 14-18. This award comes on the heels of her having won one of the two Poetry Prizes conferred by the St. Stephen's Arts Department, as well as three Scholastic Writing Awards this year! That's quite an accomplishment! The award ceremony takes place tomorrow, June 6th, at Piazza di Spagna.


Cristina's poem for which she won the Keats-Shelley House Poetry Prize is below. 


Cristina Rizzo


                 After Wilfred Owen


Spleens are thrust on the ground,

While legs squelch through

Lakes of cardinal red.


Rough metals clank and cut

Through clumps of contracting

Muscles, tissues.


Blades taste like ice

On the shivering skins

Of those


Who’ve feebly fought

For fathers

For fatherlands


Which few will

Fail to satisfy

And exalt.


While out will come others,

Not braver men,

But perhaps on better terms with chance,


Who’ll lie, alive, in luscious,

Luxurious praises and gains

But whose minds will have broken.


Therefore I give these words

To whoever lies in the mud,

Both in the body and in the mind.
