Lockdown Birthday


We walked up from the river

Beneath a canopy of trees

The air was filled with birdsong

On a warm and gentle breeze

The sun was high in the June sky

The road stretched out ahead

We drank some wine together

shared cheese and new baked bread


After lunch we wandered home

The air was hot and hazy

Then we sat around and drunk beer

Refused to feel guilty for being lazy

I dozed awhile and had a dream

Of many birthday’s gone before

When all I did was hide inside

Not stepping from the front door


So today I lived a little

Went outside and breathed the air

Thankful that the lockdown’s eased

And dragged me from my chair

The pubs may not be open

For me to go out and celebrate

But I’ve spent the day in summer sun

Just me and my best mate
