Whilst his family run business has been closed over recent weeks, Dave Beausire has let his creativity flow, and penned a poem which he has shared with us, while challenging others to do the same.
He said: "I’ve been trying to inspire people to write poems especially those who never had like myself and thought with your following it might be something you would be interested to pursue.
"Here’s my poem. I challenge you all to write a poem, here’s mine:"
A dawn will break tomorrow
When the pain will start to ease
Of a virus that made earth stand still
And there was silence in the breeze
As the sun begins to rise
On an earth in early dew
Of humanity expanded
To the many not the few
To those who lost their loved ones
And those who fought the fight In saving many others
They really shone their light
Many years have passed us by
Since the whole world went to war
But this time it was different In the ways not seen before
No guns, no tanks, no fighting
Just a silent unseen haze
That stopped the world from working
And ended many days
But we must now remember
That the world has fixed before
So together we must fight on
As we have many times before.
