The church of R.A.P.

"All the old monks' singing places
Glimmered quick with flitting faces,
Singing anthems, singing hymns
Under carven cherubims."

(J. Masefield in The everlasting mercy)
Buizingen (B)

Rusty structures in a landscape

"Man passes down the way of years,
And ruins mark his trail;
He buildeth and the hand of time
Wipes out his structures frail."

(Ch. I. Ives in The All-enduring)
Clabecq (B)

Dying landscape

Dying landscape

“If the day is done,
if birds sing no more,
if the wind has flagged tired,
then draw the veil of darkness thick upon me,
even as thou hast wrapt the earth
with the coverlet of sleep
and tenderly closed the petals
of the drooping lotus at dusk.”

(R. Tagore from Gitanjali)
Seraing (B)

Where the work has been laid down

 

Where the work has been laid down
“Lay down your weary tune, lay down

Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself ’neath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum.”

(Bob Dylan in Lay down your weary tune)
Ougrée (B)

Last train

Last train

“There’s an iron train a-travelin’ that’s been a-rollin’ through the years
With a firebox of hatred and a furnace full of fears
If you ever heard its sound or seen its blood-red broken frame
Then you heard my voice a-singin’ and you know my name.”

(Bob Dylan in Train A-Travelin’)
Seraing (B)
