The Fourth King by Sinéad Morrissey

Sinéad Morrissey's new poem ‘The Fourth King’ was commissioned as part of our annual Look North More Often programme and celebrates the 2021 Trafalgar Square Christmas tree. Here, it's performed by Isobel Chappell, Leon Ganje Day and Vasilis Vasiliou, three Year 6 children from St Saviour’s Church of England Primary School in Westminster. You can read the poem online, and on a banner designed by Marcus Walters on the tree in Trafalgar Square until 6 January 2022. You can also find a video interview with Sinéad, KS2 teaching resources, and poems written by primary school children in response to 'The Fourth King' on our website at Happy holidays from everyone at The Poetry Society!
