Recently on BBC Radio 4, Fergal Keane OBE recited from the Benedictus: A Book of Blessings by John O'Donohue a poem titled This is the time to be slow, which helped him through his struggle with PTSDListening to this poem, we couldn't help but think that it was particularly poignant during the current circumstances, and so wanted to share this with you.

This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.

Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart

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.
