Response poem to the Paolozzi-inspired mural at Leith Walk Primary School

Paolozzi-inspired mural

Handing over the poem in front of part of the Paolozzi-inspired mural

Edinburgh-born artist Eduardo Paolozzi attended Leith Walk Primary School.  The children there responded to his art with a striking playground mural, reflecting his styles and themes.  Encouraged by Dr Carlo Pirozzi, I recently wrote a poem about their mural and, on Monday 20th June, handed it over to their head teacher Ms Anne Houliston.  I was accompanied by Carlo and by Paolozzi’s sister, Yolanda.
