Lockdown 1

So many days
So many times
During lockdown 1
I thought I’d lose my mind

Aching head and aching legs
Jumping up for P.E with Joe
out of my bed

Silent screams on homeschool days
Fractions keeping me on my toes

Hour long walks and panicked stares
As we meet someone on the stairs

But then the birdsong
Loud and clear
Louder now for all to hear

Then the blue skies
Finally clear
Free of planes
and smoke and fear

Connections came and connections made
Via Zoom, and letters
And the packages we sent and made

Humanity stirred with love and compassion
Hope has formed
for change with passion
