Our Nursing Folk ( a rondeau )
Our nursing folk, all heroes now
front line troops, embattled and how,
in the face of this enemy
just carry on, so bravely,
professional to the last unbowed.
If it ends, will they take a bow
then slip back, out of sight, somehow
return to normal and just be,
our nursing folk?
Those cool calm hands on sweaty brow
of Jane of Kate, Mohammad vouch
that while they can they'll always be
there, taking care of you, of me,
and this, their dedication vows,
our nursing folk.
