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.

Was ist Winter in dieser Welt?

“Der Winter mag scheiden, der Frühling vergehn,
der Sommer mag verwelken, das Jahr verwehn,
Du kehrst mir zurück, gewiß, du wirst mein,
ich hab es versprochen, ich harre treulich dein.”

(Chr. Morgenstern)

The entrance to paradise?


“And there shall you be queen; but I,
Shall I find entrance too?
Or must I roam eternity,
To search, sweetheart, for you?”

The rain-soup pan


“Beautiful Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening,
Beautiful, beautiful Soup!”

(L. Carroll in Alice’s adventures in Wonderland)

Is this Caracas?


“Frankie pulled out a pistol.
Pulled out a forty-four.
Gun went off a rootie-toot-toot
And Albert fell on the floor.
He was her man but he done her wrong.”
