Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl”

Overwhelming power


“Without delay, without haste
We would build the beginning and the end of this street.
We build the meaning:
A Church for all
And a job for each
Each man to his work.”

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.”

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)

“I am moved by fancies that are curled
around these images, and cling:
the notion of some infinitely gentle
infinitely suffering thing.”

(T.S. Eliot in Prelude IV)
