Home Alone 2020 - Margaret Ryan



Home Alone 2020


I am home alone

When will this pandemic end?

Stay indoors, stay safe

No more hugs, self-isolate

I'm on the terrace

The river is calming me

I notice the swans silently sailing on by

Pink, pretty roses

In terracotta pots shine

Orange flowers, chives

Purple pansies, catch my eye

Glorious summer!

In England, in May

Nature is healing

The Earth breathes, the sky is clear

Listen to the breeze

Whispering to me

The sun's rays glitter like gold

Springtime is calling

Mother Earth embraces us

'Quarantine', she smiles

Ladybirds, bees, butterflies

They need me right now

Sprinkle magic to our days
