How touching is half a donkey?

How touching is half a donkey

“When I see a donkey I wonder why
There`s a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye. 
Is it perhaps because I see
A being that’s so much like me.”

(T. Holm in The donkey)
Huy (B)

The iron snake in a summer’s sun

"Sweet is the swamp with its secrets,
Until we meet a snake;
'T is then we sigh for houses,
And our departure take
At that enthralling gallop
That only childhood knows.
A snake is summer's treason,
And guile is where it goes."

(E. Dickinson, no title)
Maasmechelen (B)

A daughter has been kidnapped for nine months

"'Tis not for the happy; come, daughter of sorrow,
'Tis here thy sad thoughts are embalm'd in thy tears,
Where, lost in the past, disregarding tomorrow,
There's nothing for hopes and nothing for fears."

(A. Hunter in The wanderer)
Maasmechelen (B)

My pâtisserie is unfortunately closed


“Treats and sweets and tortes and cakes
Cherries, berries, chocolate flakes
My firm resolutions break
Goodness, oh, for goodness sake!”

(L.T. Morisson in Evil Patisserie)

“Ban on all water sports: under penalty of whores”


“completely different:
one’s expression when playing
or paying”
