You’re a pelican-shaped cloud in the sky,

You’re sunlight on the back of a bird

You’re the home in the eyes of a friend

You’re that song I sing along to in the car

You’re in all the details, taking up the small spaces

You’re filling in the gaps between words in this poem.

You’re the smile I can’t keep off my face

You’re the cold of splashing into the waves

You’re all the love letters I don’t write

And in every letter I do sign:

Love from,

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
