Nature in the time of pandemic still inspires rhymes.


hidden and indifferent on a hill behind the church, we go
to see the ducks and green grasses sing of spring's rebirth
in summer, cooling water with the algae and the bloom
chill and read or stare at waves until the rotting fish go boom
fall's another option, watch the wartorn willow swayin'
with the bitter winds and darkening storms rollin' in
when the winter whistles all the chilling waves start
to crash up in a frozen ramp to sled off giddings park

weepin willow I'm wondering how we're gonna live
when we have to stay six feet apart (giddings park)
leave a little green with a park between the seams
of the city feeling shitty (giddings park)

seems strange to think of optimistic spring setting in
with suffocating pandemic isolation instead
of budding flowers blooming gloom and doom and fears chart
we gotta remember nature continues down at giddings park

shrugging jesus looking over us, watching out
grass n' trees growing round us, greening up
lakeshore bench sitting under us, read and
wrote rapid fire rhymes like a blunderbuss

giddings park!
