We were delighted to receive a poem this week from Gillian, one of our Development Managers. This poem was written during the Coronavirus lockdown by Gillian’s granddaughter, Evie. We really enjoyed reading Evie’s poem about staying home and thought you might too. Thank you Evie and Gillian!
We’re all stuck at home because of this virus,
Missing our family and friends.
We look after the elderly, the vulnerable and show them kindness,
Long after this virus ends.
Mommies and Daddies are doing their best at home-schooling.
We have been doing Maths and English, but my favourite is painting.
Playing in the garden has been lots of fun,
Bouncing on the trampoline in the sun.
We thank and appreciate key workers and the NHS,
For working so hard, looking after our sick and doing their best.
When all this is over, and we’ve kicked the butt of corona
Everyone will rejoice and celebrate,
There will be love and no hate.
We all came together to beat COVID
Did you stay at home? I did.
by Evie Mcintyre, aged 8
We’d love to hear your own poems about ‘Staying at Home’. Please email your poem to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name and development, or pass it to your Development Manager to send onto us. We’ll publish our favourites on our residents’ blog.
