Peace during the plague.

Sounds of nature surround me,
Wails of widows haunt me.
The bustling cities are things of yore,
Alas, this woe, caused time to slow.

So quick was he, who swept the land
We were not yare, we did all we can.
Great nations fell, to this potent poison
Chaos ran amok, this is the last stand.

Amidst the babel, there lies a serene silence;
This eerie peace, caused by the growing violence.
Sparrows chirping, saplings growing,
The world is calmer hence.

Countless bodies, litter the streets of cities;
Huddled in houses, perturbed by the disease.
One day, humanity will surmount this plague
And yet, when time hastens, the earth will sicken.
