A garden full of lines and colours

“The Lord God planted a garden
In the first white days of the world;
And placed there an angel warden,
In a garment of light unfurled.
So near to the peace of heaven,
The hawk might nest with the wren;
For there, in the cool of the even,
God walked with the first of men.”

(D.F. Gurney in God’s garden)
Liège (B)

The joyful gates


O enter with me the gates of delight,
The gates of the garden of man’s desire,
Where spirits, touched by heav’nly fire,
Have planted the trees of life.

(R.S. Bridges in Invocation to music)
Liège-Flémalle (B)
