Fancies of industry


“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)
Herstal (B)

The eye of industry


“Look not in my eyes, for fear
They mirror true the sight I see,
And there you find your face too clear
And love it and be lost like me.”

(A. Housman in A Shropshire Lad, no. 15)
Uikhoven (B)

Der alleinige Baum


“Mit deinen Augen, welche müde kaum

von der verbrauchten Schwelle sich befrein,
hebst du ganz langsam einen schwarzen Baum
und stellst ihn vor den Himmel: schlank, allein.
Und hast die Welt gemacht.”

(R.M. Rilke in Eingang)
Herstal (B)

“He whom I enclose with my name is weeping in this dungeon.

I am ever busy building this wall all around;
and as this wall goes up into the sky day by day
I lose sight of my true being in its dark shadow.”

(R. Tagore in Gitanjali no. 29)

The creation of a wall


“When the creation was new
and all the stars shone in their first splendour,
the gods held their assembly in the sky and sang
‘Oh, the picture of perfection! the joy unalloyed!'”

(Rabindranath Tagore in Gitanjali no. 78)
