Gill's Poetry


Lizzie went off to China


Lizzie went off to China

To walk the great wall

But Lizzie took a tumble

And had a nasty fall

She was doing it all for Great Ormond Street

When she fell over and hurt her feet

It really is a great great shame

I think loose rubble was to blame

Several of the doctors all little Chinese men

Managed to mend her broken bones

But said they didn't quite know when

She could come back to China

To attempt the walk again.

Lizzis was in training

Before she took the trip

Me thinks this awful set back

Is just a minor blip

For Lizzie will be back there

As soon as she is well

And I think Peter should join her

Because he is so swell (and missies her so much)


Get well soon Lizzie - we love you.
