Jonathan Sky turns Six and We say Goodbye to The Queen

Me: Today is an emotional day.

Nell: It is.

Me: Jonathan Sky turns six and we say goodbye to our dear Queen.

Nell: I’ve written two poems. Would you like to hear them?

Me: Very much.

Nell: Let’s start with Jonathan.

Me: Yes.

Nell: ‘Someone rather special

Is six years old today.’

‘Rather special, is he?

And six years old, you say?

Would he like a dinosaur?’

‘Of course, but not right now

He’s busy eating spaghetti

And making dogs miaow.’

‘Dogs bark you silly person

Everyone knows that

Now go and get the sandwiches

And put on your birthday hat.’

‘David ate the sandwiches

He did it by mistake

But Harriet’s got ice cream

And Poppy’s made a cake.’

‘Let’s fetch Fayely Whaley

So we can sing our song

Happy Birthday Jonathan Sky

Today you can do no wrong.’

Me: He’ll love that.

Nell: And we love him.

Me: We certainly do.

Nell: And now to The Queen’s poem.

Me: Yes.

Nell: ‘Thank you Your Majesty

For all you have done

For the years that you served

Always being the one

We knew would be there

Whatever might be

In sickness and health

It was your constancy

That made you unique

Among women and men

Steadfast and unchanging

Until the time when

You had to leave us

You had to go

So Thank You Your Majesty

We all loved you so.’

Me: That was beautiful, Nell. It’s hard to believe she has gone.

Nell: She’s watching over us now with all the other Guardians.

Me: Yes.

Nell: We’ll FaceTime with Jonathan and Faye this afternoon.

Me: We will.

Nell: We come and we go. It’s the way of the world. So, let’s celebrate two wonderful people. Raise your tea cup to Jonathan Sky and The Queen.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
