Poetry in a Time of Pandemic. 
AISN: B0889TDKR2 (2020)

On March 6, 2020, the Coronavirus became real to our family, and we began to self-quarantine, later called ‘stay-at-home’. A few poems emerged during this first month. On April 1, National Poetry Month began, and Robert Lee Brewer, of Writer’s Digest fame, began his PAD (poem a day) Challenge. 

This began my personal goal to write a poem each day. Here you’ll find poems that may make you laugh, think about places and times far from today – from Giza to the Old West, and poems that affirm the beauty of each day.
