‘Claim to Fame’
As April showers vie for claim to fame, May looms on encroaching horizon in garb of eminent poetic bloom gracing halls of hearth and loam--high mountain and deep vale, glen, dale, and wandering trail. The celebrations of blessed motherhood, the rhythm and beat of the graduate march, the encroachment drives a summertime mood boasting slushes and teas soothing the parch with hydration resisting sun and heat. Thoughts of vacation and a break from school-- perched, poised, prompting from edge of seat-- fuel visions of fun in a cool pool. Coronavirus still lurking around means concern for safety needs still abound as May emerges beautifully gowned. Will schools break for summer in month of May, or will Covid steal summer away too? As parts of the world put numbers at bay-- lowering the toll, skittering the skew-- day to day life tries to stage a return of health and wellness at school, work, and home. Other countries are struggling to quell the grind viral death takes on economic gloam with numbers climbing and boggling the mind. Help will be sent and, none of it too soon; but it will not lighten the weight of grief-- of losing loved ones and misery strewn by an unwanted crasher with morbid motif. How long must we wait just longing to see "normal" events, wondering what will be, till this evil virus will set us free?
