Our thrones decay

“Still flows the ancient fount sublime; —
But, ah, for my heart, shed tears, shed tears;
Not it, but love, has scorn of time,
It turns to dust beneath the years.”

(G.W. Russell from Homeward: Songs by the Way)
Heusden-Zolder (B)

The entrance to paradise?


“And there shall you be queen; but I,
Shall I find entrance too?
Or must I roam eternity,
To search, sweetheart, for you?”

(Fr. Money-Coutts in Paradise regained)

Seraing (B)

Only dreams are presented here


“At the age of thirty-seven she realised she’d never
ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair
So she let the phone keep ringing and she sat there softly singing
Little nursery rhymes she’d memorised in her daddy’s easy chair”

(Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show in The ballad of Lucy Jordan)
Seraing (B)

A tower in the woods


“Zum Sehen geboren,

Zum Schauen bestellt,
Dem Turme geschworen
Gefällt mir die Welt.
Ich blick’ in die Ferne,
Ich seh’ in der Näh’
Den Mond und die Sterne,
Den Wald und das Reh.”

(J.W. von Goethe in Faust, in Der Tragödie zweiter Teil (Part II), Act V
Dour (B)

Desolation row


“And someone says, “You’re in the wrong place my friend
You better leave”
And the only sound that’s left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row”

(Bob Dylan in Desolation row)
