his Beauty in Tragedy

Poet's Notes:
Greatest silence all times now is stepping into
the Second period of Dutch Lock Down: all shops without selling food, must close their doors. Shops with half food and half ware, must close. Hotels may not serve their guests in their dinner-salons anymore. In their own rooms, I still dunno, but I can phone the hotels, I think I will do that, just to know fors ure.
What I know is that many many shops in downtown are closed, Only eating establishments may stay open. The market down town twice a week too. The supermarkets stay open too. They may deliver vegetables and al to our homes at minimal order of 50 Euro, at least ordering 4 days before, o.n.l.i.n.e

With the usual mouth-nose mask. All treatments with the usual distance of 1,5 meter. Included for restaurants all delivery 1,5 distance on your frontdoor mat. All Traders which must close their doors get a paying-back treatment, each payment for every three months. This second severe Lock Down will end on the 19th January 2021.

We must follow the TV and hear what our Prime Minister will say.

Really will be ended or not yet.? Poor traders and business men.

Beauty can be seen ever with greatest beauty. Silence is the best way to get peace in life. We should motivate mind and life with greater responsibility and keep trust on God. This poem is nice and excellently penned. peace in life.

Ma'am beauty is in beholder's hand, I believe. I agree lockdown doesn't look especially during Christmas and New year but I have thought to keep myself up even in this social distancing. I'll give more time to do scrub and a face pack to glow more and make me look more beautiful. And try all home remedies way back of aristocratic era.....but we'll make through this corona run away.
