Today's Saturday poem received a certificate of merit signed by Matt Harvey in the St Brelade's Poetry Competition. The theme was "Inspiration". The winning two entries in the adult class, and all the shortlisted poems can be seen pinned up on a display at St Aubin on the Hill Church which is open daily.

A candle burns, and does inspire
A symbol of the tongues of fire
The dancing flame, the spirit's art
Deep warming joy it does impart
Sun light warming from above
His glory shines on earth in love
Now Aten brings perpetual light
And opening eyes to inner sight
Breath of life, come face to face
The gift of spirit, such a grace
Bring joy to us in hearth and home
And guide the way, where nomads roam
In beginnings when all worlds begun
The spirit moved, within the One
And through the ages all along,
She sang with joy her endless song
