“Blue bird, true bird,
Tell them my heart is fain
To cross the plain and the mountain,
And live in their heart again!
But I am a slave in a far-off land,
And I long, I long in vain!”

(E. Nesbit in Slave song)

Love and desire and hate:
I think they have no portion in us after
We pass the gate."

"When you are in your grave,
the flowers blowing
shall hang their heads
and sicken in their grove.

Beauty will fade
and wither at your going,
oh my own love,
oh my own love."

(M. Kennedy title unknown)
Jemeppe-sur-Meuse (B)

And Lads and Girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing,
And frocks and curls.”

In a twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet blows
The dead will arise and burst out of your clothes
And ye shall be changed.”
