Lost and Found

This month signifies the yearly anniversary of the COVID pandemic. Every student at SBS wrote a reflection piece about what they LOST and what they FOUND during the year long pandemic. They were very touching to read and here is a poem written by a Grade 6 student.

Lost and Found

Pandemic seemed never ending,
Always seeming to go on longer,
Pandemic life is now blending,
Only texts are now sending,
Physical connection there is no more,
As I watch through a screen in my home,
There is no more hugging galore,
I feel sad and lonely and bored,
Oh but the things I learn,
Animation and digital art,
Sports I was dis-concerned,
But art I returned,
Minecraft came back for sure,
Hours on top of hours,
My friends and I said Bonjour,
On zoom I was lured,
I missed being with my friends,
Not seeing anyone without masks,
Going to Aftercare depends,
On the amount of people sick in beds,
I’m tech-savvy now,
Able to make anything work,
Cheer for me I’ll take a bow,
I am so amazing, wow!
These are all the things I’ve learned,
For better or for worse,
Even though Covid is bad,
I’m sure it’s not a curse.
