Heptonstall School

In Heptonstall, a rare species of hardy bee,

Survives each Winter in these Arctic climes

In a hive of purposeful, joyful community.

Each chilly morning, they all happily swarm,

Hugging their coats tight, to keep themselves warm,

Cocooned against the biting Pennine blast!


Children bring their pollen to this Winter hive,

To make Learning Honey, sustaining and sweet,

At a familiar, friendly, welcoming place,

A School, where Nature and Nurture meet.

A poem which took me back to the nature rambles we enjoyed at school which took place irrespective of weather conditions.
