Ours is not tomorrow.
Love with youth flies swift away,
Age is naught but sorrow."

Where the winds blow through the industrial remains

"Little wind, blow on the hill-top,
Little wind, blow down the plain;
Little wind, blow up the sunshine,
Little wind, blow off the rain."

The leopard has been laid down

"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb.
        And the leopard shall lie down with the kid,
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together,
        and a little child shall lead them.
They shall not hurt nor destroy
        in all my holy mountain ..."

(Isaiah XI)

Talking in black and white

“At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what’s true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden”

The eye that sees everything

"Who then knows,
Who can now declare
Whence cometh creation?
He the Primal One whose
Eye controlleth all things,
He alone doth know it,
Or perchance even 
He knoweth it not!"
