Meditações - Time the refreshing river

„And the poor in their fireless lodgings, dropping the sheets 
Of the evening paper: "Our day is our loss, O show us 
History the operator, the 
Organiser, Time the refreshing river." And the nations combine 
each cry, invoking the life 
That shapes the individual belly and orders 
The private nocturnal terror: 
"Did you not found the city state of the sponge,"Raise the vast 
military empires of the shark 
And the tiger, establish the robin's plucky canton? 
Intervene. Descend as a dove or 
A furious papa or a mild engineer, but descend."“ 

W. H. Auden, in Spain
