History will Remember

This is a wonderful poem by Donna Ashworth, inspired by positive community reactions to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It has been sent to me for inclusion in the Clan Gregor Society Newsletter. I felt that I had to share it.

History will remember when the world stopped
And the flights stayed on the ground
And the cars parked in the street
And the trains didn't run.

History will remember when the schools closed
And the children stayed indoors
And the medical staff walked towards the fire
And they didn't run.

History will remember when the people sang
On their balconies, in isolation
But so very much together
In courage and song.

History will remember when the people fought
For their old and their weak
Protected the vulnerable
By doing nothing at all.

History will remember when the virus left
And the houses opened
And the people came out
And hugged and kissed

And started again
Kinder than before.
