Came across this poem written in 1869, reprinted during 1919 Pandemic. It was written in 1869 by Kathleen O’Mara: 

Staying Home

And people stayed at home 
And read books 
And listened 
And they rested 
And did exercises 
And made art and played 
And learned new ways of being 
And stopped and listened 
More deeply 
Someone meditated, someone prayed 
Someone met their shadow 
And people began to think differently 
And people healed. 
And in the absence of people who 
Lived in ignorant ways 
Dangerous, meaningless and heartless, 
The earth also began to heal 
And when the danger ended and 
People found themselves 
They grieved for the dead 
And made new choices 
And dreamed of new visions 
And created new ways of living 
And completely healed the earth 
Just as they were healed. 

Reprinted during Spanish flu 
Pandemic, 1919
