Here are some of the residents’ poems:

"Blue Light Services" by Joan G

Thank you for your kindness

And always being there

To make us feel safe and well

Because we know you CARE

------------------

"Blue Light Services" by Alison H

As the young man lay there panting for his breath

Standing by the window stood the pale shadow of death

As he stood there grimly waiting for his prey

Life stood bravely before him battling for her way

Suddenly, the fever left him and he grew calm and still

For his muttered prayers for help brought the blue lights

And changed the Almighty’s will

Blue Light Services" - Three Haiku Poems by Shirley S

Red lights signalling

An accident has occurred

Medics soon attend

The ambulance arrives

I breathe a sigh of relief

I am in safe hands

Total commitment

Emergency Services

Ready for action
