Do You Hear Me? - Weebly.com
by Nancy Colvin
Enough of the blossoms on the apple tree blowing away
Enough of the rain that doesn’t come
Enough of the wireless connection going crazy, the
telephone off, email lost
Enough of children and grandchildrens’ relationships,
needs, desires, problems
Enough of news reports, lying, maybes, conjectures
Enough with the virus that has no brain and has done so
Do you hear me?
Be gone—let me live!
I am human and need a hug
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nancy Colvin is 89 years old and still lives in the same house in which she and her husband raised their two children. She met her husband at UC Berkeley and went on to teach first grade in her early years. She is a people-person and misses all the things she used to do before the Pandemic. She started a book club, was an avid tennis player, had a movie group which hiked every Wednesday on Mt Tam. She and her husband have also had some wonderful adventures hiking. One of her favorite memories was being a docent at the Museum of Modern Art. She so much enjoys OLLI classes and hopes everybody can get back to being together soon.
