Break! break! break dear friend, break the fretting chain Wake! wake! wake yourself, not the time for sleep Clean! clean! clean your hands, wash the little stain Keep! keep! keep the distance, no time for weep. Close! close! close your doors, sway of death in reap Lay low, dim and low, let the season pass Pain of ashes from unmade graves of mass Frozen fear gripping through the silent hearts. Let us hail those souls through our singing brass Who kept fighting to save the human hearts. Won fifth Place in Delightful Dizains Poetry Contest sponsored by Beth Evans

Nice one Jenish! Fear of death looms large for many, let down by lying politicians who have provided no protective equipment to warriors on the front line. But we are working hard.

Excellent work reflecting our days! We are the lucky ones for up to now no wars in our lives. Now though we are called upon to face an invisible enemy. We must do what we are asked for the common good! We shall prevail! Wonderfully done dearest, Jenish! Hugs xxx

Hello Jenish somadas, This is trying times for everyone. We have to follow the rules. Wash our hands many times. Stay indoors. Go out when you need to. Be safe, be strong, be well. Enjoy your day my friend.

And now I'm in further trouble because anyone over 65 cannot leave his home. Don't know how I'm going to cope.
