Art Prize
Geoff Ryman Painted Silk Panels of Air, by Darlene Coltrain


And Now He Has Won an Award to the tune of “The Man on the Flying Trapeze”
He wrote the book Air with the greatest of ease,
Geoff Ryman is here, and he’s eager to please.
The means of production
His characters seize,
And now he has won an award.

In a faraway village, high fashion was born,
But for new technology, people had scorn.
A tiara is something
Chung Mae would have worn,
But Geoff gets to wear one today.
