   That lawful orchards mocks;
How luscious lies the pea within
   The pod that Duty locks!"

"Rote Rosenknospen
künden schon des Lenzes Triebe.
Rosenrote Wangen
Deuten Mädchens erste Liebe.
Kleiner roter Vogel,
Flieg herab zur roten Rose!
Bursche geht zum ros'gen
Mädchen kosen."

(H. Conrat in Rote Rosenknospen)

Away flies the boy
To the destin'd post
And then home with joy."

Bikes to borrow

Bikes to borrow

“I’ve got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good.
I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.”

(Syd Barrett in Bike)

“It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don’t matter, anyhow
An’ it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don’t know by now.”
