Tag Archives: gratitude


Thursday evenings
at our front doors
we are all there

Grinning at each other
neighbours all
stepping out

Into our gardens and
driveways to see
to acknowledge each other

Clapping for our health service
grateful it is there, that people
risk themselves to care for us

It is difficult to stop but
eventually we do
calling out “Stay well”

That mantra of this pandemic
along with “Take Care”
then we go back inside

And someone, along the street
as we stopped last week
played ‘What a wonderful world’
