A Dylan Thomas inspired poem in response to Corona Virus || Dai Woolridge

On pages 10 – 11 of Word in Action we featured a spoken word poem from Dai Woolridge, Poet and Creative Development Specialist for Bible Society from the words in Job 33.4: ‘the breath of the Almighty gives me life’. You can view Dai performing the spoken word poem in this video.

 Dai writes, 'In this time, we cannot escape the sheer devastation of the coronavirus. It has reminded us of our fragility and, tragically, so many have fought for their final breath. It is a stark reminder that though we are home to the ruach of God, we are formed from the dust.

'This is a Villanelle inspired by Dylan Thomas’ 'Do not go gentle into that good night’. It’s a poetic response to our current crisis. It is a plea to those in charge, a pep talk to the courageous frontliners, and a prayer to those fighting for their breath, to ‘breathe, breathe, against the final breathed out breath'.'
