Yesterday, was Hugh MacDiarmid's anniversary, he died on September 9, 1978. On reading about the man, and his poetry, I was reminded of these lines:

For we ha’e faith in Scotland’s hidden poo’ers,
The present’s theirs, but a’ the past and future’s oors.

from "Gairmscoile "

Although written nearly 100 years ago it perfectly captures the political & cultural situations of to-day.
