Creation Groans

Turning & turning – and do we now see
Mere anarchy at last upon the world?
The falcon in his widening gyre sees
Only birth pangs, earthquakes & Rumor’s wars.
And we within these circling days keep watch,
Work, and pray, not for a second coming
Just, but enduring present Jubilee!

— after William Butler Yeats, The Second Coming
