Three More-Poems in a Pandemic

Something Each Day

Olivia Rose here’s a message for you

your great-grandma Annie does love you

and aches to see you in person quite soon

but Covid-19 says “not yet, my dear”

well I’ve seen you on Zoom and sang you a song

I’m storing up kisses and hugs for you

and on May the third you’ll be two months old

with a grand birthday outfit I betcha

so here’s the message Olivia Rose

starting in May you will get in the mail

a postcard from Annie that’s just for you

and you’ll get one every day

each postcard will be something different

maybe Grand Canyon because I do love it

a another great scene or an animal or two

with stamps that are sort of fish-y

so walk to the mailbox with Mom or with Dad

and see what you’ve got to hold on to

and make you a stack ‘till you’ve got thirty-one

remember: I love you – I love you

I’ve got the ouch blues

yes the ouch blues

what is loneliness to one

is a respite to some other

it’s the ouch blues

just the ouch blues

who bumped into the fixture

and started to howl

now it’s the ouch blues

still the ouch blues

embrace, kiss it well

and resolve to start again

oh the ouch blues

sing the ouch blues


and tomorrow


April 20, 2020


just stay within the isolation

and work with all the possibilities you find there

time for much more creativity

time for socializing with new people in new ways

opportunities to see some things

as you walk in fresh air that you never saw before

listen now for enriched mystery

suddenly it will dawn on you that you really are not isolated
