Harold in Lockdown

entry picture

A dumb waiter

Waiting for it to end


Not so much a


But a home staying

The betrayal of

New year celebration

Here in the room

Consuming thoughts

Of the old times

Slight ache in heart

The caretaker of memories

In this No man's land

Great piece of verse, Ruth.

And no Birthday parties, I guess. (Although Stanley would not have minded!).
