A ‘palindrome poem’ written by 10-year-old student from the Southeast of England has gone viral thanks to their teacher sharing the poem on Twitter.
Jane Broadis, a primary school teacher in the UK, posted the inspiring poem on Twitter where it went viral within the day, reaching 47k retweets and 158k Likes so far. The young author, known only as ‘AO’, wrote the poem about their struggles with dyslexia- most importantly about people’s perceptions of those with dyslexia. It is a surprising, clever, and thought-provoking poem, and thousands of people fell in love with it all over the internet.

Today in Y6 we looked at poems that could be read forwards & backwards. I was stunned by this one written by one of my 10 year olds. Please share - I would love her work to be appreciated further afield. I wonder if it could even find a publisher? pic.twitter.com/tmEQpiRrhq— Jane Broadis (@Jb5Jane) 27 February 2019
