AUDIO – Fergal Keane reads from Benedictus

BBC Correspondent Fergal Keane has posted an audio clip of him reading a verse that gives him hope.

From Benedictus, a book of blessing by John O’Donohue.

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

Again on fresh pastures of promise,

Where the air will be kind

And blushed with beginning

John O’Donohue
