What did you learn during Lockdown?
What did you learn during Lockdown
Stuck in the house at lockdown,
you need not waste the days
People were inventive,
used time in different ways
Results could be fantastic,
which made me rather jealous
At seeking out new pastimes,
some folk were extra zealous.
Learn to play an instrument,
or train your voice in song
Some of the more brainy ones,
now speak a foreign tongue
Others chose to garden,
make banana bread or jam
Knit jumpers for grandchildren,
crochet blankets for their pram.
plastering the walls
Swivel hips for hula hoops,
or juggling eight small balls
Did you research your family,
catch up with friends on zoom?
Or get injured moving furniture,
to dance around the room.
Some have walked for many miles,
over hill and dales
But don’t dare visit Scotland,
stay far away from Wales
Myself I have been lazy,
just exercised my pen
I will learn to improve my brain……
but I’m not saying when.
