Life in the Time of COVID-19

Graham Kosnar, 12

I t started—the disease that just kept coming

 

S taying in Peruvian lockdown

 

O ften complaining about Zoom meetings

 

L osing our minds

 

A t home day and night

 

T rees and parks are bare

 

I t drove everyone into despair

 

O bjects became our closest friends

 

N obody outside walking,

walking,

walking,

Walking in Montana

Trekking through Yellowstone

The sky is blue

Trees sway.

I smell wild sage and mint.

I can follow

Whatever trail I want

Passing birch trees

Traversing hills

Hiking

D

    w

       n

Into valleys

Entering a stream,

The water, cold on my feet

Feels good.

 

I am home.

I am finally free.
