Walking out

by Caroline Whalley

Just over a year, February twenty, twenty.  
Visiting friends walking, swimming, 
Going to theatres, watching plays, films,
Chairing meetings, visiting museums, 
I gave little thought to striding out, 
Stately homes, gardens, galleries, 
Nowadays outings need serious planning
Lest Covid swarms over blockades and barriers.

Day 8, of what will be a ‘one a day’ poem. By the end of April 2021, 30 poems will create a series written throughout the month of April 2021. Each poem covers a fragment, a snippet taken consecutively throughout a day.
