Les Avins en Condroz

“When I left my home and family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station
Running scared, laying low
Seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know.”

(Bob Dylan in The boxer)
Les Avins (B)

View on various time panels

“Over these things I could not see;
These were the things that bounded me;
And I could touch them with my hand,
Almost, I thought, from where I stand.
And all at once things seemed so small
My breath came short, and scarce at all.”

(E. St. Vincent Millay in Renascence)

A freezing petrol station in the snow


“Which is the sound of the land

Full of the same wind
That is blowing the same bare place

For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.”

(W. Stevens in The snow man)
Schleiden (D)

Bridge under troubled clouds


“The shadow of the coming rain is on the sands,
and the clouds hang low upon the blue lines of the trees
like the heavy hair above your eyebrows.
I know well the rhythm of your steps,
they are beating in my heart.”

(R. Tagore from The gardener)
Gosselies (B)

The bridge of darkness


“Father of night, Father of day

Father, who taketh the darkness away
Father, who teacheth the bird to fly
Builder of rainbows up in the sky
Father of loneliness and pain
Father of love and Father of rain”

(Bob Dylan in Father of Night)
