Earth's Lone Cry

I cried my heart out For i am hurting, but no one pays attention Ozone depletion my signature symptom But they wouldn't let go I cried out until until my tears caused floods and stirred storms My piercing cry caused droughts I changed the times and seasons To let you know that I was tired I needed rest all along, but they would let me be Trees fell like spent match sticks in a bin Smoking chimneys like the dragons of old I cried the more yet no one heard me Then 2019 came calling Corona virus, Wuhan set the place and the tone Then they heard my cry and shut down the factories and the cities and the tanking cars. The burning gas ceased, the place of consumption slowed the pace. Ozone's healing in place suddenly Nature's respite claimed. The air smelled better, The rain fall a reminder of the yonder years. The Artic and Antarctica rejoicing Temperatures going South The rainbow and the sunshine My convalescing signature Natures circle is turned full cycle. Covid-19 a blessing in disguise.
