Just Another Auden October: Let music for peace / Be the paradigm

October 24, 2011


Let mortals beware of words
For with words we lie,
Can speak peace
When we mean war.


But song is true.
Let music for peace
Be the paradigm,
For peace means change
At the right time.

(W.H. Auden, “Hymn to the United Nations.” 1971.)
