Song Of The Dynamo (Brazilian Verses)


    How do I know what Order brings
    Me into being?
    I only know, if you do certain things,
    I must become your Hearing and your Seeing
    Also your Strength, to make great wheels go round,
    And save your sons from toil, while I am bound!

    What do I care how you dispose
    The Powers that move me?
    I only know that I am one with those
    True Powers which rend the firmament above me,
    And, harrying earth, would save me at the last,
    But that your coward foresight holds me fast!
