Is there delight ?

In this pandemic fight?

Let’s get delight- full!

Change the mindset in that skull.

Delight in unsung heroes

Doctors, nurses, those volunteer roles,

Delight in time to stop and stare

To show each other kindness and care,

Delight in the air you can breathe

The springtime birth - budding leaf,

Delight in the sun on your face

The world at a much slower pace,

Delight in what’s being taught

The important things for which we fought,

Delight in those held dear

The lesson is very clear!

We don’t need the rat race

Now we give each other space,

Now we consider others plight

Now we keep our neighbours in sight,

Now we focus on basic essentials

Displaying empathy - our credentials,

Delight in the hereafter-

Delight in the sound of laughter,

Living life at a slower pace

The world with a caring face,

Delight- be delight- full and humbled

At this time - when the world stumbled.

    Delight is there for us, people are coming together even though they remain apart. I hope that this wonderful way that many people are coming together during this time remains when all is well again.
    Your words express the happiness that can be found in trouble.

        Thank you for your lovely words - we certainly are in strange times.
        I also wrote this prayer for the time

        A prayer for our time

        Our NHS, who are in our hearts,
        honoured in our minds, 
        Out of retirement some have come, 
        When there is work to be done, 
        on the front line for all of us. 

        We give you this day our daily thanks. 
        And we realise your torment and stress, 
        as we fight this virus
        That threatens against us. 

        Don’t lead yourself into temptation, 
        but isolate to help deliver us from this evil.

        For ours is the responsibility
        and the power, and the duty, 
        To protect the NHS and each other
        For the sake of all we hold dear. Amen.
