Poet John O’Donohue: April 7th, 2020

Lie low to the wall

This is the time to be slow,

Until the bitter weather passes

The wire brush of doubt.

Try, as best as you can, not to let

Scrape from your heart

All sense of yourself

And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,

Time will come good;

And you will find your feet

Again on fresh pastures of promise,

Where the air will be kind

And blushed with beginning.
