Here's To The Nurses

Published on by Francesca Quarto

Here's to the nurses, bless their good hearts

working together, to mend our sick parts

Here's to their quietly, efficient ways

making their rounds, like policemen with trays.

Here's to the nurses walking their beat

soft speaking shoes, that quiet their feet

Soft spoken words to help calm your fears

an arm round your shoulders, stained with your tears.

Here's to the nurses we honor in rhyme

Their dedication, a stairway, so few can climb

To these men and women, our thanks and our prayers

For all of your service while climbing those stairs.

Poem by Francesca Quarto inspired by the nursing staff of Riley's Children's Hospital
