This is the Time to be Slow


Hadrian's Wall, east of Twice-Brewed

This is the Time to be Slow 

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

All sense of yourself

And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,

Time will come good;

And you will find your feet

- John O'Donohue, Book of Blessings
