Staying in

I am happy
Staying in
I was worried to begin
This Isolation
But as time goes on
The worry’s gone
And I am happy
To stay in

Oh! The busy-ness I planned
For months before;
Events to get me out
So as not to rot behind my door
There was no doubt
I would not be a stayer-in
When I retired.
And for a while
The new routine that I acquired
Semed to fit the bill
I was out, about, and everywhere

The wind changed
Life changed
Across the world
No-one knows
When Life will re-begin
So for now

I’m staying in.
