Good Sabbath

O Watcher in the dark, you wake

Our dream of waking, we feel

Your finger on the flesh that has been skinned

By your bright day

See clear what we were doing, that we were vile

Your sudden hand shall humble great

Pride, break it, wear down to stumps old systems which await,

The last transgression of the sea.

-W.H. Auden
