the streets were empty
the shops were closed
and the people were no longer outside
But the spring knew nothing about it.
And so the flowers continued to bloom.
It was March 11th, 2020,
everyone was placed in mandatory quarantine,
Grandparents, adults and your people,
That is when the fear became real
And the days all looked alike
But spring didn't know, and the roses kept blooming
Meanwhile, we rediscovered the joys of eating together
Of letting imagination free
Of traveling while reading book.
Dispute the virus,
Because spring didn't know and it taught everyone the power of life.
