As the UK went into Coronavirus lockdown over the past few days this poem by Thomas Hardy kept coming into my mind. So I thought I’d read it for you and talk about how I think it speaks to us at a time like this.
You should be able to play the recording in the SoundCloud player above, but if not you can find it on SoundCloud here.
I hope you enjoy the poem and that you stay safe until the crisis passes.
The Darkling Thrush
