Judge's comments: ... We loved the way the poet wrapped a story around this artwork, addressing it directly, creating a relationship with it, whilst never becoming overly anthropomorphic. Its unusual structure and line pattern, six by two lines, and the elegant use of enjambment carries the reader onto the next miniature verse, in a way reinforcing the individuality and delicacy of the panes of glass. A beautifully considered and crafted poem, worthy of the first prize.
