Staying at home, being quiet can bring out some of your talents and creativity. It sure did for this person, don’t you think?
Corona virus poem
As I sits here in self isolation away from my friends
I think of what I can do until the quarantine ends.
I look all around me there’s plenty to clean
I could scrub and disinfect until all is a gleam
Or I could go out to shop buy things that we need
But the shelves are all empty so unlikely to succeed.
Its funny how toilet paper is so popular these days
There must be some people using it in unimaginable ways.
People are staying at home and learning to cook
Using an internet recipe or an old recipe book
I look out of the window thinking what should I do
And that’s when I see sky in a beautiful blue hue
Outside is so sunny , so warm and so bright
I decide to go out and enjoy all the light.
I sit on the front porch in my adorondack chair
Looking out on the street I see something quite rare.
The neighbor is out with his kids all in tow
Other families are biking all in a row
There are joggers and skaters and kids towed in a cart
Of course they are all keeping 6 feet apart
Another neighbor I haven’t seen for some time
Walks by, gives a wave and hopes all is just fine.
There’s gardeners outside pulling up weeds
Others are mowing , pruning and planting some seeds.
One kid is up climbing so high up a tree
Reminds me of childhood. Oh I was so free.
The sidewalk and roadway has pictures of chalk
A man and his wife take their dog for a walk,
Its refreshing to see the neighborhood so alive
I guess Covid 19 brought everyone outside.
And that’s when I realize that in this odd Spring
Its teaching us to appreciate some simpler thing
Like being a good neighbor, family member and friend
We’re in this together until this pandemic’s end.
