On this, the 110th International Women’s Day we celebrate with arguably the best blog post I will ever write – one in fact not written by me but by my 7-year-old daughter! She wrote this poem during her last day of home schooling.
In it we see lockdown through the eyes of one of the youngest members of our Liberty family. In a year which has seen us all tested in ways we couldn’t have imagined; the rest of 2021 brings us hope.
We hope that wherever you are reading this and whatever age you are (especially if you, like me, prefer not to count the years anymore) this poem helps bring you warmth and hope.
Living and Leaving Lockdown
Seeing my friends when lockdown ends
Having playdates and chatting with mates
Shops will open, restaurants too
I can’t wait to go out to meet up with you
Social distancing, such a chore
Wearing masks is such a bore
Going on holiday, oh what fun!
Put on our bikinis and go into the sun
COVID-19 will pop like a bubble
Meeting in the park won’t get us in trouble
Going to people’s houses for a barbecue
Sausage and burger rendezvous
No more zoom calls, back to school
Being in class will be so cool
Everybody cheer hooray!
Coronavirus has gone away!
