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 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






Into valleys

Entering a stream,

The water, cold on my feet

Feels good.


I am home.

I am finally free.
