Peace Concert

It was a privilege to attend a “Peace Concert” at South Cheshire College on Wednesday September 21st. Primary Schools from Crewe had gathered with their teachers families and friend to hold a “Concert for Peace” on “World Peace Day”. They sang traditional peace songs such as “Blowing in the Wind” and “If I had a Hammer” and finished with a brilliant version of “Peace will Come”.Between the songs peace poems were read composed by children from the schools. At the end of the evening an ex Poet Laureate from Cheshire awarded a certificate to the pupil with the winning entry.
This is her poem

When will peace come?

Peace is not to be heard
The sound of bombs fills my ears.

Peace is not to be felt
The feeling of hope swirls round the room.

WHEN WILL PEACE COME?

Peace is not to be seen
The sight of ash-covered ground fills my eyes.

Peace is not to be tasted
The taste of bitter fear fills my mouth.

WHEN WILL PEACE COME?

A bomb hits the ground
And my heart hopes for peace.

WHEN WILL PEACE COME?
WHEN WILL PEACE COME?
What a wonderful evening with such a powerful message.
Thank you Matthew Plant and St Mary’s Crewe for the invitation.
