Lockdown Poems

Could you write down your thoughts about the lockdown? We’d love to include lockdown poems by adults or children in our online services. Here is a lovely poem to inspire you.

Or this poem by Jim Carruth

the long bench

For the times ahead
when we will be

as if at either end
of the long bench

where distance kept
is love’s measure

and death dances
the space between

when words alone
are not enough

and queued memories
reach out to touch

let longing be a store
of nut and seed

that grows each day
in strange hibernation

readying for its end –
the sharing of the feast.

Please send your work to me – revd.lesley@badshotleaandhale.org
