Stuck at home for a year now I know
That I kinda’ like movin’ real slow,
While I’m glad to resume
Chats that are not on Zoom
I’ll persist with my easy new flow.
Oh, I hope we dare gather and play
And yet still keep the virus at bay,
Stuck at home for a year now
Social time is so dear now
Hugs and kisses—are they here to stay?
Yes, I know what will give my heart wing,
What I most want the next months to bring,
As we finally emerge
From a year like a dirge,
I so yearn for a rousing group SING!
I don’t care if it’s car, plane or ship
I just want to depart on a trip
If I do not soon travel
Yep I fear I’ll unravel
Change of scene and I’ll get back my zip!
(So I’m making my plans at a clip!)
What are you planning to keep or toss once you can venture back out into the world?
(I could say a lot more on the subject myself, but mostly it can’t be said via limerick.) Until then, playful writing and art-making are keeping me calm and amused.
What is keeping you calm and amused these days, as you wait for spring to really take hold?
