Members of Writer's Bloc, our creative writing and poetry club have been writing poems inspired by their time during lockdown. Below are three fantastic poems:
A Poem for the NHS by Grace Yeo
When this time has passed
And the torrents of tears have stopped falling
Light will thread itself through the toughest of barricades
Things that have been dreamt
Things from wishes
Things from the heart’s desire
Will flood the broken world.
When Covid-19 has said goodbye
We will laugh
We will cry
We will struggle
But life goes on.
Covid-19 has damaged our lives, but
We will laugh in the face of adversity.
When we see friends again
In our homes
We will remember the heroes:
The heroes who saved us from the smothering darkness.
When this is history
The unsung heroes will fade
But will be remembered
We will remember:
Thank you NHS!
Hawaii by Amelia Holdcroft
Swimming in the clear blue ocean with my best friend.
Hawaii’s amazing volcanoes beneath our feet.
Drinks in a coconut shell being brought to us
And the sun is beaming bright.
Blue skies, rainbow fish, swimming pigs
Can it get much better?
At the End by Toby Adlam
When it’s the end I wanna see people.
I wanna be free and see, so many friends.
I wanna ignore distancing, and go out in groups of 100.
Parding the streets and causing chaos.
Ill have so much fun and won’t use teams again.
I can use a pen and paper for the first time in forever.
And go over to friends and play.
I’ll be head over heels with joy.
But before I do anything I wanna check that it is finally over.
One can never be to sure.
Please 2098 come faster……..
