Reaching for poetry and other art forms are what some humans are doing in these days of the pandemic. Here’s a collection of poems written by the “Gypsy Poets”, a group of women who have expressed their thoughts for the times. The poems were sent to the OB Rag by Karen Kenyon, who organized the group. She told us:

I am attaching poems written about this unusual time here on earth — describing fear and hope and
reflection. Our members consist of one woman from England and Ireland, another who is a retired
school counselor, a convention planner, and an employee of The Athenaeum…..

Here are the poems (sent to us in pdf):

Thank you for publishing the poetry of the Gypsy Poets. I can’t think of a more essential time to read poetry, which opens a door and brings us together in our isolation.
