Talented poets at Ashcroft

Everyone here at Ashcroft Care Home are thrilled to share a beautiful poem written by our talented residents. 

The Shadow of the Night Owl

The shadow of the night owl flits across our dreams,

 sometimes it brings us happiness, sometimes it brings us screams.

At night the owl takes flight, wouldn’t I like to know what it’s up too as I catch sight.

Twit twoo, twit twoo, the owl glides its wings and it swoops closer.

But for the tawny owl love and life looms in the shadows, the only time he rests his mind is when he recollects the past it leaves behind.

As the daylight creeps in the shadows disperse and all their hopes and dreams are held in that moment. Another day begins.

Ashcroft Care Home is located in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and provides dementia care, respite care, and palliative care.
