Here is a beautiful poem that was shared by a colleague.
(Read with Dr. Seuss book rhythm)
The buildings were big and people would smile
And travel they would mile by mile.
But sick they become. in numbers it grew.
Businesses worried, communities too.
Things stopped for a bit, the world slowed its roll.
The virus had certainly taken its toll.
But what they then saw from slowing things down,
Is in fact they now had less reasons to frown.
Families now gathered, what game shall we play?
Pass me the blue crayon, give mommy the grey.
Dad’s home guys! He’ll read us a book
then all us together will cook.
The lungs of the planet caught a small break
less travel want less pollution to make.
People did realize they’d all be okay.
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
