Now the end is near
Covid now is in second year Still we live with the dread and fear We're promised that the end is near That freedoms on the way we hear... Where do you go to my lovelies When all the instructions are read Do the boundaries astound you Do you lie much longer in bed? Are you lonely keeping distance Have kids eager to be in class Missing hugs with special loved ones And loathe wearing a facial mask? If one lives in an apartment At least you can view the starlight Those with a house and a garden Can be out by day and by night. When the weather is against you Are you at a loss what to do Do you get weary of reading And watching television too? Have you done so many puzzles That you have now become brain dead Does memory stray to old days In dreams of the good times ahead?

Hopefully Boris will be cautious this time and listen to the experts instead of cherry picking, these variants are a worry as they're saying new strains are bypassing the immunity the vaccines create. Well written verse Belle. Had first jab last week. Enjoy your weekend Tom

Let’s hope we’re eased gently into safety and caution isn’t thrown to the wind. Glad you had your first jab, my next one is due early April. Thank you Tom, have a good weekend too~ Belle

Hi Belle, I long for the day when this Pandemic is over. Being stuck in the same rut over and over again can be overwhelming, but I try to remain optimistic in these trying times. Thanks for sharing such a write. Have a great day:-) Alexis

Hi Alexis, we’re all longing to get our freedom back, won’t it be a wonderful day when it eventually happens. Thank you for reading and the comments, so appreciated. Have a lovely rest of the day ~ Belle :-)

Good health requires at least two hours of sunshine every day and without that, it is "burn baby burn" when city dwellers can see the sun again .....Aloha! Rico

I’ve seen the effects of what lack of vitamin can do and it’s not nice at all, roll on summer and freedom. Thank you Rico ~ Belle

All the above has crossed my mind, but I must say that I can't wait to have the vaccine, not that it is the ultimate miracle, but it does help. Wonderful write Belle, I have to fave! Hugs and love, Jennifer.

I have seen few posts this day. I did not even post mine. Glad you are optimistic about the future. The past two years were dreadful. I haven't seen my grandsons all this time. Lovely poem.
