TEN-YEAR-OLD Rosie Roberts has bought a poppy to mark Remembrance Day.
But the youngster from Berry Brow is also making her own special tribute.
She has written two moving poems about the war dead.
The poems, Remember and Sad Meetings, were written by Rosie at home in Hangingstone Road.
Proud parents Andy and Anne Roberts said: "When Rosie showed the poems to our older friends they had tears in their eyes, which says it all."
Rosie became interested in the war through talking to friends and family who were involved.
Her grandfather Jim Roberts was in the RAF, and her grandmother Margaret Holt has told Rosie all about rationing, and has even shown her all her old rationing cards!
Mrs Roberts said: "Everybody is very proud.
"Her grandma has pinned the poems up on the wall and has shown all the neighbours!"
Rosie, who attends Newsome Junior School, has been writing poems for a couple of years.
Mrs Roberts said "The poems were all Rosie's idea. As she has got older she has got better and better!"
Mrs Roberts also added: "We are very proud of our daughter, not only for her poetry, but she's always in the thick of it when we help out at our local club's charity events."
Rosie recently helped out at a fundraising event at Almondbury Bowling Club, which was raising money for St Luke's Stroke Unit.
Rosie, who plans to write more poems, said:
"My friends are all impressed by the poems, as they like writing them as well.
"My teachers are going to show them to the parents and visitors at my school."
Rosie also made a booklet about Remembrance Day last year, which many people enjoyed reading.
