Poem: A letter to lockdown

Dear lockdown, you aren’t so dear

But you protect us from virus

That is so clear. 


It’s funny but

‘Don’t mingle always be single’

Has never been truer. 


Home school teaching from my mum.

And living with my brother who is a pain in the bum! 


I breathe in the silence and it fills me like a balloon.

Lockdown, you have changed us.

Made us go back to the old. 

We thought we were playing indoor games

Instead we were learning lessons. 


You may think you have locked us all

But you forget.

The sun is not in lockdown

Love is not in lockdown

Learning is not in lockdown

Relationships are not in lockdown.


Sure, we may be missing 

Playing outside,

Our friends and teachers

Fresh air

But very soon you will come to an end.
