A poem sent to us by a mum to two young adopted children

Here’s a great poem we’ve been sent by a mum to two young adopted children. We thought you might like it, especially if you are struggling to prioritise schooling at the moment under the lockdown during coronavirus (COVID-19).

Life under lockdown…

Jumping streams
And running through fields
Lazy mornings
And home cooked meals

Exploring our world
Wild and free
Learning through play
Space to just… be

No schedules or lists
To busy our days
Time together
Learning to play

I’m a toddler again
Sometimes I’m 1
I’m filling in gaps
With my dad and my mum

I break things and tantrum
I scream and I shout
But I’m home in my safe place
Where they love me no doubt

I’m getting my needs met
By learning to feel
I am learning who I am
I am learning to heal

So Maths and English
Are not as important you see
We have been given extra time
So I am learning to be… me!

Our poet wished to remain anonymous but gave us permission to share.
