Face to Face

“Stand face to face, friend…
and unveil the grace in thine eyes,
All care let buffetting winds bear away;
For in the golden house of the singer
the voice of lamentation may not be.”

(H.M.F. Bantock unknown title)

Onderzeebootloods

“In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines

(The Beatles in Yellow Submarine)

The tower of the water

"Des Menschen Seele
Gleicht dem Wasser:
Vom Himmel kommt es,
Zum Himmel steigt es,
Und wieder nieder
Zur Erde muß es,
Ewig wechselnd."

(J.W. von Goethe in Gesang der Geister über den Wassern)

Last work, first green

“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”

(R. Frost in Nothing gold can stay)
