Wordsworth in Lockdown: 

I wandered lonely as a cloud, 
Two metres from the madding crowd, 
When all at once my name was called 
To enter Waitrose hallowed hall. 

This was the pensioner’s special hour 
I’d gone to get a bag of flour, 
But I forgot -when through the door – 
What I had gone to Waitrose for. 

The Waitrose staff are extra kind 
I told them it had slipped my mind, 
They ask what else I had forgot 
They clearly thought I’d lost the plot. 

I phoned my wife again to ask 
She reminded me of this special task 
“I need some flour to bake a cake 
With all that cream you made me take!” 

“Ah yes, I recall” I had to lie, 
I dared not ask what flower to buy, 
But then I saw them at the tills 
A bunch of golden daffodils
