Sun woke up today like any other day, To spread its fragrance to the eastern skies, However, to its sheer surprise, Streets are vacant only for good, now, that A thick sheet of smoke isn’t blocking its way Kissing the earth’s surface never seemed so beautiful The virus is in town, and clutter is at bay
Helping its way to cross the roads Not even once had to stop, for finishing up the course Longing for that nap for an undisturbed while Friends on a leash not to be seen for a mile Masters in the balcony, calling for help Animals sighed, “It’s our turn now, and its high time you bet”
These skins are paler, these nights are longer These days are wearier, these healths are bleaker These halls are emptier, these hugs are scarce The future is scarier, the vaccine is farther
In the midst of all of these,
Those skies are bluer, those mists are cooler Those stars are brighter, those winds are kinder Those trees are greener, those ants are calmer Those pals are closer, those horns are lighter Those bonds are stronger, those hearts are warmer
Lockdowns are prettier, for you and for you being here.
