History says, Don't hope
On this side of the grave,
But then, once in a lifetime
The longed-for tidal wave
Of justice can rise up,
And hope and history rhyme.
From 'The Cure at Troy' by Seamus Heaney
The artist would like to thank Marie Heaney and the Heaney family for kindly allowing the use of the quotation and to use "When Hope and History Rhyme" as the title of the present piece.
