An Old Nurse Poem

I found this old poem on printed on our graduation program and thought it was clever. There is no author listed

Like an angel hovering near,
Shielding us from doubt and fear,
Face so gentle, sweet and bright,
Like a moonbeam in the night.

Ever constant through the day,
Fearlessly you go your way,
Seeing that no one grows worse....
Heaven bless you,
                         Faithful Nurse


  1. I received this poem from an aunt who was a nurse. It was a present for my graduation at the Hôtel-Dieu de Montréal in 1966. The title was “NURSE”. In those years, we really cared for our patients. The nuns were also very lever administrators. Patients never had to wait during long hours in ER. Doctors should work with patients, not become politicians.

  2. I'm not one who is a fan of poems, but this one is short and sweet and easy for Oldfoolrns like me to understand. Thanks so much for reading my foolishness and taking the time to leave a comment.
