Een gedicht

Be gentle

    Be gentle with yourself these days.

    Sometimes the currents beneath

    bring tangles to our hearts

    and we don’t notice

    and glide smoothly on

    but wonder why we are

    tired, or angry, or fractious.

    Sit yourself down

    with your wise grandmother,

    and let yourself

    be a small child again in her arms,

    and let whatever comes, come.

    And when the small child

    has done her crying,

    set her gently on her feet again

    and send her softly back out into the world.

    And sit, as only grandmothers can,

    calm and grounded,

    wise with twinkling eyes,

    amid the ups and downs

    of this crazy world ( Rachel Holstead).
