T'was a few weeks Before Christmas 2020☃️⛄
And all through the town,
People wore masks,
That covered their frown.

The frown had begun
Way back in the spring,
When a global pandemic
Changed everything.

They called it corona,
But unlike the beer,
It didn’t bring good times,
It didn’t bring cheer.

Contagious and deadly,
This virus spread fast,
Like a wildfire that starts
When fuelled by gas.

Airplanes were grounded,
Travel was banned.
Borders were closed
Across air, sea and land.

As the world entered lockdown
To flatten the curve,
The economy halted,
And folks lost their nerve.

From March to July
We rode the first wave,
People stayed home,
They tried to behave.

When summer emerged
The lockdown was lifted.
But away from caution,
Many folks drifted.

Now it’s December
And cases are spiking,
Wave two has arrived,
Much to our disliking.

Frontline workers,
Doctors and nurses,
Try to save people,
From riding in hearses.

This virus is awful,
This COVID-19.
There isn’t a cure.
Hurry with a vaccine.

It’s true that this year
Has had sadness a plenty,
We’ll never forget
The year 2020.

And just ‘round the corner -
The holiday season,
But why be merry?
Is there even one reason?

To decorate the house
And put up the tree,
When no one will see it,
No-one but me.

But outside my window
The sunshine gently calls,
And I think to myself,
Let’s deck the halls!

So, I gather the ribbon,
The garland and bows,
As I play those old carols,
My happiness grows.

Christmas ain’t cancelled
And neither is hope.
If we lean on each other,
I know we can cope.

Sumaya there are no words to express my gratitude for your kind and wholehearted gesture towards me...Firstly I want to thank you for giving me hope when others scammed and failed me... Secondly thank you for giving me the privilege to regain my trust in humanity and thirdly thank you last night for hooking me up with that noble and generous sugar daddy Blesser for transferring r10,000 to my account and giving me 500 cash to order Uber back home..... Because of you I am now being able to buy Christmas clothes and presents for my children and from the left over some groceries and toiletries.... there are no words to describe how i feel and tell of the unspeakable joy you've put in my heart... thank you very very much for the smile you put on my kids face ... God will continue to bless you and increase you in every area of your life..... amen...... and as for you who are also seeking for sugar daddy Blesser, search no more here is the person you've been looking for.. you can contact sumaya on WhatsApp +27710215512 and thank me later
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Riversong. We were made to feel so welcome and Aaron was a great host and very patient with us arriving so late. The facilities are top class and we really enjoyed every small detail (especially the sherry and caramel popcorn). I will miss the superb breakfast and the beautiful fruit platter provided. The secret garden was a special treat and a small hideaway to just be quiet in and enjoying the purling sound of the rivulet meandering through. The books were so inviting... I wish I could read them all! Overall we had an amazing experience and we felt so spoilt.
Love this guesthouse. Been back many times and will see you soon. Clean, neat, peaceful and well managed by friendly staff. Always a treat, our home away from home. 🏡
