Eine Form der Leere


“Wirf aus den Armen die Leere
zu den Räumen hinzu, die wir atmen; vielleicht da die Vögel
die erweiterte Luft fühlen mit innigerm Flug.”

(R.M. Rilke in Die erste Elegie)
Sambreville (B)

Like something spiritual

“It was not Saint — it was too large —
Nor Snow — it was too small —
It only held itself aloof
Like something spiritual –“

(E. Dickinson in Further poems from Emily Dickinson)

Lovely Lourdes and some garments


“Bernadette, people are searchin’ for the kind of love that we possess
Some go on searchin’ their whole life through
And never find the love I’ve found in you …”

(Four Tops in Bernadette)

When the fierce cold comes, there is the heater

"Grimmige Kälte Sauset hernieder,
Womit nur deck ich
Des Kindleins Glieder!
O all ihr Engel,
Die ihr geflügelt Wandelt im Wind,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein kind."

(E. von Geibel, no title in Spanisches Liederbuch)
Leuven (B)

Ils jouent à la grotte de Lourdes

"When children are playing alone on the green,
In comes the playmate that never was seen.
When children are happy and lonely and good,
The Friend of the Children comes out of the wood."

(R.L. Stevenson in The unseen playmate)
Huy (B)
