Four Aphorisms for a Time of Plague

Unforeseen disasters wait
Just outside the garden gate
Pity those who lose their smiles
On the heartless COVID miles.
Comfort for tormented eyes
Is what doctors all advise.
If you let your lungs get wet,
You may drown in deep regret.

hiding behind the curtains
from her younger self?
