Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
~ Dr. Suess
From the Sunny-Side of the Street
The buildings were big, and people would smile.
And travel they would, mile by mile.
But sickness did come, in numbers it grew.
Businesses worried, Communities too.
Things stopped for bit, the world slowed, its roll.
The virus had certainly taken its toll.
But then, that they saw, from slowing things down,
In fact, they they had now, less reasons to frown.
Families now gathered, what games shall we play?
Pass me the blue crayon, give mommy the grey.
Dad’s home guys, he’ll read us a book.
Then all of us, together we’ll cook.
The lungs of the planet, caught a small break.
Less travel, meant less pollution we’ll make.
People did realize, we’ll all be ok.
They don’t need so much to get through the day.
Maybe this virus, that caused so much stress,
Showed the whole world, that more, can mean less.
