Eliana’s quarantine birthday party.
|Within her quarantine she sighed;
yet Eliana, lacking mirth,
was thrown a party anyway
to celebrate her date of birth.
It was not easy putting forth
a party held in quarantine.
With social distancing full force,
and not a body in between.
(At age of ten, smart phone has she;
this girl is gentle as a lamb.
A kitty is not in the cards,
so she relies on Instagram.)
In joy the presents given her,
from uncle, aunt and cousin, too.
A plethora of things to wear—
her favorite color royal blue.
There were limits set for dining;
Lil Eliana’s Mom did bawl.
A long and box-like table used,
yet Uncle Ned sat in the hall.
This quarantine affected more;
the parents, Abigail and Mike.
And they surprised Miss Eliana
by giving her a ten-speed bike.
Eliana liked her party,
but the distancing felt eerie.
She now counts her days in capture,
though these changes make her weary.
