Genethliacum Ode: "2021"
Conceived in pain of loss by viral ghost,
you languored on a bed of distanced hearts.
Silent cries unheard through face unseen.

Gestation filled with lies and angry words
have caused us to seek your birth with all our fleeting hopes.
You must be better than the fading womb.

The fireworks of your first angelic cries
will give us measured hope, that good has come,
but then we'll know when lover's day is here.

Oh, Afterbirth begone by blooming shoots.
Thy bum be cleaned when roses fully smile,
and health return before the rains of spring.

The son of pain need not be pain himself
for many painful births are long forgot,
but called upon to bring us hope, today.

The Towers bowed in Judgment's painful birth.
The Arizona sank into a salty pool,
and 2020 floundered of health and well-being.

May God bring Hope amid uncertain birth.
May Joy restore your name and days anew.
May the newborn year be what we long to see.
