There is Hope. A poem by Tony McCarthy

Pandemic grips the world.
Fear fills our hearts.
Social distancing the new gospel.
Many affected.
More isolated.
Older cocooned.
Serious in I.C.U.s.But there is hope!
Pilots fly in supplies,
Healthcare staff battle,
Applaud those discharged.
Victims mourned
As in Famine times

But there is hope!
Birds still fly.
Fish still swim.
Animals still feed.
Butterflies weave patterns.
Flowers are blossomed.
Crops thrive.

There is hope!
Christ has risen!
