Frogs respond from 3 miles
deer bolt away in terror
I sneeze in the woods

With the virus still spreading, a sneeze will scare away people fast--for sure. Good, descriptive poem.

Ha ha! I love the extended spelling of "achoo." I can hear you and my husband achooing away.

I've heard you in the next aisle when shopping at Sendik's grocery store, and on the Amtrak train to Chicago, in the quiet car, you were there and you were not quiet, but the reason was the season. Thanks for your poem Edward.

Funny. Laughing in-between sneezes and blowing my nose.
