“Another day in lockdown as panic grips the nation. Another day in quarantine and utter isolation. Thank God I have a window, Thank God I have a view. Across the street’s another window and in that window is you!
Day 21 I noticed you, you played the clairenet. Day 24 you sort of waved and that was how we met”
