NaPoWriMo Day 9 - Remember Then

A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second has eight, and so on until you get to the last line, which has just one syllable.

calls both our names -
a quest for gardens
and historical sites

that bring colorful adventures
into our current lockdown life style
