The Rainbow Children

I found this poem and it made me think of all our beautiful, clever and talented children who make up our St Cuthbert’s family and how we will talk about them in years to come. We are all missing you very much and send you lots of Happy Easter wishes.

Stay at home and stay safe.

Mrs McKie

The history books will talk of now,

That time the world stood still.

When every family stayed at home

Waved from their windowsill – 

At those they loved but cold not hold,

Because they loved them so.

Yet, whilst they did they noticed all the flowers start to grow.


The sunny days arrived in time,

And rainbows did appear.

They kicked a ball on lawns and yards,

Which helped us hide our fear.

They walked each day but not too close,

That time the world stood still.

When people walked straight down the roads,

That once the cars did fill.


They saw the people who became ill,

And knew the world was scared.

Bu whilst the world stood still they saw,

How much the whole world cared.

They clapped on Thursday from their doors,

They cheered for all the brave.

For people who would risk their loves,

So others could be saved.


The schools closed down, they missed their friends,

They missed their teachers so.

Their Mams and Dads helped with their work,

And helped young minds to grow.

The parents used to worry that,

As schools were put on hold,

Their children wouldn’t have the tools,

They’d need as they grew old.


But history books will talk of them,

Now adults, fully grown.

Those little boys and girls back then,

The ones who stayed at home.

They’ll tell you how they fixed this world,

Of all they would fulfill.

The RAINBOW children building dreams,

They’d dreamed whilst time stood still.
