Under Lockdown – a poem by Adam

Milan in Lockdown

A poem, written by Adam, age 9, reflecting on life under lockdown from Dublin, Ireland.

Under Lockdown

I miss my friends from school,

I miss my nan and grandad,

I miss my cousins.

Sometimes the news upsets me so I make sure the news is not fake

I know that it is important to think of others and help them if you can.

I know that it is important to keep busy and to enjoy nature – even in your own garden.

I dream of my future where the environment is safe and protected.


Adam shared his poem with developmenteducation.ie as part of the Generation Lockdown series.
