Sound of the Three Wisdoms

We’d like to share the very special poem written at a recent creative writing workshop. One of our regular partners Vanessa Goddard (Senior Tutor for Additional Learning Support, Adult Education)  is running a Mental Health Support Project. Learners can self-refer onto the project and must have, or previously have had, mild to moderate mental health issues. All the courses offered are geared up to assist them in dealing with these issues and we arranged a creative writing morning with the help of  Bibliotherapist and Creative Writing tutor Julie Walker. The group, who didn’t know each other, were initially a little worried about taking part, but over the session they developed confidence and stressed how much the writing session helped them.


Here is the poem they wrote which is read to the tune of  ‘My Favourite Things’ from the Sound of Music.

The Sound of the Three Wisdoms 

My son’s eyes smiling

And grandkids who love me

Tweet of the blue birds

The buzz of the wild bee


Freedom from worry

The stress and the woe

This is the way that my day should go


When the storm breaks

When the clouds crash

When I’m feeling low

I listen to favourite songs that I know

And then I begin to glow


A poem by

John, Russ and Rita
