Happy Birthday Livingston – A Poem

Happy Birthday Livingston - A Poem

Back in 2011, Jenifer entered a competition called My Kind of Town where people wrote poems about the major towns and cities in Scotland with her poem Happy Birthday Livingston. One of the rules of the competition was that each poems had to be in a particular style. Jenifer was one of eight winners winning a set of limited editions Tennants Glasses(!) and publication in the Sunday Mail!
