Given the prevailing circumstances, I thought you might be interested in this.



Streets of Lyme, so calm and clear

Heroic ghosts of yesteryear here.

Compliant, content in secret alliance,

Veiled in the sweet serenity of silence.

Gentle spirits, seen it all before

Infection, penury, the hand of war.

You’re not near to haunt or taunt

Not despair, nor feelings gaunt.

Glad you led the wondrous way

To live and love another day.

Dawn will break, birds will sing.

There will surely be another Spring.
