A retrospective

“Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best.”

(Norman Greenbaum in Spirit in the Sky)

Die trockene Andacht

“Ich will mich erinnern
dass ich nicht vergessen will …
Ich will mich erinnern
an alles was man vergisst..”

(Erich Fried)

Neighbours

Neighbours

“The man that is open of heart to his neighbour,
And stops to consider his likes and dislikes,
His blood shall be wholesome whatever his labour,
His luck shall be with him whatever he strikes.
The Splendour of Morning shall dully possess him,
That he may not be sad at the falling of eve.
And, when he has done with mere living–God bless him!–
A many shall sigh, and one Woman shall grieve!”

(R. Kipling in Neighbours)
Jemeppe-sur-Meuse (B)

The forms that once have been

The forms that once have been

“This is the place. Stand still, my steed,
Let me review the scene,
And summon from the shadowy Past
The forms that once have been.
The Past and Present here unite
Beneath Time’s flowing tide,
Like footprints hidden by a brook,
But seen on either side.”

(H.W. Longfellow in A gleam of sunshine)
