Do you care for someone, possibly better than you care for yourself?
Who takes care of you?
This Carers' Calendar does.
For January, your Carers’ Calendar poem is about Snowdrops.
The illustration is a photograph of a batik made by Hilary Watkins a decade ago; the colours of the batik have mellowed over time, un-noticed day by day, but easy to see over the years; a bit like the care you give, perhaps.
Please look after yourself.
And now, with sky-facing palms,
Single unsolitary snowdrops,
First decoration of our flowering year.
Singing a song that sings quietly inside all the smallest of things,
Of things that are and yet to be,
