Leonie the Poet in isolation out Lockhart way

     Leonie in isolation.


Our world has wound down to a very slow pace

When all we can do is remain in our place

We thought in a few weeks this all would be over

And the world could go back to being on clover

When Gladys says now this is the norm

It’s beginning to sink in we have to conform

With technology bringing us Facetime and Zoom

We can bring all our family right into the room

I am zoomed into yoga at the breaking of dawn

And my quilting instructions come in the morn

To see that my friends are quilting with zest

Inspires me onto produce my best

We long for this virus to be under control

To be back with you all will be good for our soul

At this point in time it is out of our reach

But what we really would like is to get to the beach

To walk with our friends and to swim with the fish

When the timing is right will be our first wish

With time on our hands and no one about

We look for a chat when we get to go out

It is a good chance to fit lots of things in

We’ve cleaned out some cupboards and filled up our bin

Sorted the photos and watched some good flicks

And constantly finding something to fix

It is nice to have time to sit down with a cup

And not be concerned that the time is all up

Corona has certainly forced us to stop

And we wait for instructions which come from the top

Always wash your hands is Scomo’s call and we know he just wants to protect us all

Go forward my friends with a cheerful shrug  and long for the day we can all have a hug

Missing you all; Leonie.
