|Let’s hear it for this cooried space
for spring sun brightening my pale face
for dandelions in uncut grass luring the bees
for the sweet flash of blue of a Great Tit’s need
for the clamour of lads, dads and mums playing football
for the surprise gift of prosecco and strawberries at my door
for the I’ve-not-baked-in-ages warm scones
for technology bring friends to loosen my still tongue
for the all-day comfort of pjs, tea and just one biscuit
for others out there shouldering the load.
Let’s hear it.
