Normality?

The Park was alive with the jive of exuberance.

Smiling, singing, laughing, all turning the page on

The scourge that had caged us indoors. There

Was a confidence in the air that the normality

We had earned had returned! Kindergartners

Were there romping on a rope. An ancient

Chinese couple with their feisty dog had braved

The day to say they, too, were thrilled to be still

Mobile until she faltered and altered the day

For all with a frightening fall. The dog barked his

Alarm then lay by her side wagging his tail to tell

Her he was still there.
