Two Springs Ago

When the mind was without Covid Fear,

No news had so much gloom in the air.

When we celebrated life with every passing day

No matter how much hectic a day

When children could freely play in the parks

And could attend the classes of various arts

When the busy working class waited for the weekends

The malls and eateries got filled with thousands

When social media was abuzz with photos of holiday trips

And the viewers kept admiring their friends’ photo clicks

Today after two such springs we sit and recall

Our visits to every tea stall or shopping mall.

A small virus now teaches us to value the past

Whatever wrong we have done to the planet, to mend it fast!

Let’s promise to conserve everything nature- made

Or else we shall find ourselves in the hospital bed!
