Almost Easter – Poem

Nearly Easter

Almost here

Plenty to do

This time of year.

Lots of chocolate

All around

People hunting

On the ground.

Looking for eggs

Bunnies and sweets

Easter is full

Of super sweet treats.

Easter holidays

Time for a rest

Be good to yourself

Live life to your best!

I woke up this morning thinking about having two weeks off in the run up to Easter. This brief poem sums up my newfound optimism. Tomorrow I am going to Edinburgh to get myself in the mood for a year of adventure, after two years of not really going anywhere.

I hope that everyone has some restful plans this Easter. Hopefully we have turned a corner and things are looking up. For a previous, more thought-provoking poem of mine check out We need a world poem.

Happy Easter!

Covid, Covid, Go Away – Poem

Covid, covid, go away!

Don’t come again another day.

You’re doing my head in

With your constant aching.

My nose is always running,

At night I keep on waking.

As for my throat, you make me sore,

Never felt like this before.

I didn’t think Covid would hurt me much,

But seems that I was wrong, as such.

After two years avoiding you,

You came to get me, got me in a stew.

So Covid, covid go away!

You really hack me off today!

This is a poem I wrote just now in response to two sleepless nights since I began feeling the symptoms of Covid. For another of my little poems check out We need a world. I am going back to bed to not sleep.

We need a world… poem

We need a world,

Where oil isn’t required,

No petrol is burned

And no furnaces fired.

We need a world

Where the energy is clean,

Solar and wind farms,

Are everywhere seen.

We need a world

Where we care for the wildlife

Stop the extinctions

Give forests a new life.

We need a world

Where we value each other.

Cherish our planet

For the Earth’s like our mother.

I think today’s poem speaks for itself. No matter what is going on in the world and however horrific it is, we cannot avoid the background ongoing destruction of our environment.

It is happening hourly in every nook and cranny. While we move from one crisis to another, climate change is progressing stealthily, making irreversible changes involving extinctions of species which have done nothing to deserve our neglect.

Rant over. Let’s just find ways to make real differences in the world. In amongst the dark negativity there are glimmers of hope. We can grab onto these and put our energies into growing and developing them until they overcome the dark.

If you were nudged to think about global warming during this poem then I have done my job. Another such poem is Warm Weather In Winter. Thank you for taking the time to read this post and perhaps I can persuade you to follow my blog for similar future content.
