Thanks to all the children from the Epic Elfins who visited Verulam House Nursing Home and especially Lilly who wrote this beautiful poem especially for the occasion.
Whistling is the sound of the wind slicing through the leaves on the trees
Owls watch from the branches with big orange eyes
Oh the sound of the crunchy leaves under my feet!
Darkness brings dancing shadows and earthy smells
Cool, crisp, clean fresh air on my face
Raindrops fall from leaves like perfect little stars
As showers give way to bright sunshine
Flowers growing in colourful spaces
The children performed a play, sang songs, played musical instruments, told jokes and kept the nursing home residents entertained. At they end we all ate cake together which I think everyone would agree was the best bit!
