Spring 2020

Form: Free Verse

Look up
look down
a country in lockdown for early spring
stay inside
stay safe
it’s not the time for hunting eggs
turned out
nice again
the sun is shining on empty streets
and there is grass
untrodden grass
the first thrusts of life this year
stay safe
stay inside
it’s not time to go explore
nature wild
she’s growing wild
in the chill of a springtide breeze
mocking blossoms
fill the trees
and in the cooling April showers
don’t chance it
stay inside
the unseen clouds of plague
remain waiting outside the gate
