Spring is here


Now spring is here, and lambs are born,

the daffodil’s in bloom.

We’ll be hiding eggs for kids to find

and filling our faces soon.

The clocks have changed, and so the evenings

start to linger light.

For most of us, the change will help us

feel upbeat and bright.

But don’t be fooled. Don’t think that you can

stop caring for yourself.

There are simple things that you can do

to preserve your mental health.

It’s fine to indulge in lavish foods

like hot cross buns and eggs,

but try not to overdo the junk

and don’t forget your veg.

And now the weather’s brightening up,

get out and get some air.

A gentle walk in nature can help you

forget your cares.

You might spend time with family

which can be both bad and good.

Enjoy it, but if you feel you need

to take some space, you should.

Remember that not everyone

will feel their stress get lesser.

Soon there’ll be exams at school;

some kids will feel the pressure.

So look after yourselves and your families.

Be sure to have some fun!

Make time for each other, and for yourself.

Happy Easter everyone!
