    Michael Rosen is out of ICU after 47 days!
    That must have been a real battle!

    These are the hands by Michael Rosen
    (Tribute to NHS)

    These are the hands
    That touch us first
    Feel your head
    Find the pulse
    And make your bed.

    These are the hands
    That tap your back
    Test the skin
    Hold your arm
    Wheel the bin
    Change the bulb
    Fix the drip
    Pour the jug
    Replace your hip.

    These are the hands
    That fill the bath
    Mop the floor
    Flick the switch
    Soothe the sore
    Burn the swabs
    Give us a jab
    Throw out sharps
    Design the lab.

    And these are the hands
    That stop the leaks
    Empty the pan
    Wipe the pipes
    Carry the can
    Clamp the veins
    Make the cast
    Log the dose
    And touch us last.

    I don’t know who this is but it sounds like a great story full of hope and good words.

    Michael Rosen is the author of "Going on a Bear Hunt" one of the best-selling
    (9 million) children's books ever and fallback book for every Primary teacher!

    During "Lockdown" in NZ and around the world, people were encouraged
    to put teddy-bears in their windows so that local children could go on a
    "Bear Hunt". We did our "Bear Hunt" Easter weekend and almost half
    the local houses had a bear in the window.

    Michael Rosen was Children's Laureate for two years.

    Thanks for taking a moment to summarise.

    A fine backdrop to his long challenge to overcome this disease.
