If you’re looking for a window …

“Build me a cabin in Utah
Marry me a wife, catch rainbow trout
Have a bunch of kids who call me “Pa”
That must be what it’s all about
That must be what it’s all about”

(Bob Dylan in Sign on the window)
Limbourg (B)

Red is my wall

“I always saw, I always said
If I were grown and free,
I’d have a gown of reddest red
As fine as you could see …”

(D. Parker in The red dress)
Gosselies (B)

Contrasting greetings from Floreffe

A happy meal

“Als Mahl beganns. Und ist ein Fest geworden, kaum weiß man wie.
Die hohen Flammen flackten, die Stimmen schwirrten, wirre Lieder klirrten aus Glas und Glanz,
und endlich aus den reifgewordnen Takten: entsprang der Tanz.”

(R.M. Rilke in Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke)
Grâce-Hollogne (B)

Too much letters for a small door

"I wished to post a letter,
But although I paid much,
Still the letter was overweight.
“What is in this package?” said the clerk,
“It is very heavy.”
“Yes,” I said,
“And yet it is only a dried fruit.”"

(A. Lowell, no title in Dreams in war time no. 6)
