Réservez pour votre avenir aujourd’hui

"Sad heart, what will the future bring
To happier men when we are gone?
What golden days shall dawn for them,
Transcending all we gaze upon?"

The thoughtful grave encloses --
Tenderly tucking them in from frost
Before their feet are cold."

Prix et qualité


“All things are created by the Om;
The love-form is His body.
He is without form, without quality, without decay:
Seek thou union with Him!”

I very much desire the mail

Die Post bringt keinen Brief für dich:
Was drängst du denn so wunderlich,
Mein Herz?

Nun ja, die Post kömmt aus der Stadt,
Wo ich ein liebes Liebchen hatt',
Mein Herz!

(W. Müller in Die Post)

When the postman has forgotten to ring twice

"Eight o'clock;
The postman's knock!
Five letters for Papa;
  One for Lou,
  And none for you,
And three for dear Mamma."

(Ch.G. Rossetti in Sing-song: a nursery rhyme book)
Ivoz-Ramet (B)
