B Cador: September 2020
Last Wednesday, when the school was closed as we had no water, one of our pupils, Nancy in Y4, decided to write a poem called Wonderful Nature. Nancy was inspired to write her poem following Mr Lindop's sharing of a poem with the class on Tuesday. The poem was called Looking up by Diana Hendry. You may like see the collection of prose and poems written about Lockdown that the poem came from. Click here for the link.
And now to enjoy Nancy's very thoughtful and mindful poem. Well done, Nancy!
I am inside but looking out
To an apple tree swaying elegantly through the wind,
To a beautiful robin flying from one branch to another,
To a scarlet red poppy sitting peacefully on the lime green grass.
Be sure to look out to see wonderful nature.
I am inside but looking far
To damp, lonely fields surrounding the world,
To towering trees covering the dense forest,
To a handsome swallow gliding through the cold, wet sky.
Be sure to look far ahead — there is lots to see.
I am inside but looking up
To a white, calming cloud slowly drifting by,
To a scorching, hot sun lying in the relaxing sky,
To a flock of birds flying elegantly through the gentle breeze.
Be sure to look up — you won't regret it.
Enjoy, too, some of the lovely photos of nature shared by our families during Lockdown and whilst school was closed. All are a reminder that we need to stop and take a moment to take in, and be in awe of the wonders of the natural world.
