NHS Clap for Carers Night – Every Thursday 8pm

Male Nurse

Michael Rosen wrote the following poem for the NHS 60th Anniversary. He is currently in hospital with Coronavirus but is now stable. This poem is for all nurses around the world who are fighting Covid-19, who come to work and face the dangers when human instinct is to run from it, wonderful courageous and caring individuals.

Please show your appreciation by clapping, blowing horns, banging pots with wooden spoons outside your front doors or open windows, at 8pm on Thursday nights!

These are the hands

These are the hands
That touch us first
Feel your head
Find the pulse
And make your bed.

That tap your back
Test the skin
Hold your arm
Wheel the bin
Change the bulb
Fix the drip
Pour the jug
Replace your hip.

These are the hands
That fill the bath
Mop the floor
Flick the switch
Soothe the sore
Burn the swabs
Give us a jab
Throw out sharps
Design the lab.

And these are the hands
That stop the leaks
Empty the pan
Wipe the pipes
Carry the can
Clamp the veins
Make the cast
Log the dose
And touch us last.

Stay well…stay healthy…and stay at home to protect our NHS staff!

Walk in Peace;

Walk in Beauty

until we meet again…
