It’s time to put on make-up
and fluff up our drooping hair—
sashay to the Country Club
for our Big Spring Tea affair.
We used to visit with our friends
and sip a glass of wine
and listen to a program
and have a fine old time.
But this year will be diff’rent.
Some will join on Zoom.
The rest of us will spend our day
at home in our living room.
It’s been a Year of Virus.
We’ve still more to get through.
But there’ll be a fine Spring Tea again
in the Year of Twenty-Two.
