Worktime-freetime - a poem by J Cope

This poem was written by Julie Cope from Tall Oaks Care Home in Stoke on Trent.


Am I mistaken?

I thought it was Spring?

As I look out the window

snow is falling.

Cosy and warm inside,

Yet I yearn to be outside.

With freedom and fresh air

and wind blowing through my hair.

But, work has to be done

And fun time will come.

For now, deadlines to meet

To ensure everything is complete.

Am I mistaken?

Should I not stop?

As I look out the window

darkness has fallen.

And so I bid

goodbye and good night,

Until tomorrow,

another day.
