Quite a row of them sitting there

"At night when reddest flowers are black
Those who once sat thereon come back;
Quite a row of them sitting there,
Quite a row of them sitting there."

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."

The abandoned stage of the industrial theater


“When a historic building is left to decay, 
A theatre where once, famous names used to play.
Its stage steeped with memories of happier days, 
Of concerts, comedians and actors in plays.”

Under pressure of the bridge


“Join me on the bridge to nowhere
Leave your worries far behind
Follow me and we will go there
We’ll end up with peace of mind”

Even the door to the toilet is open

"Fair the day shine as it shone on my childhood -
Fair shine the day on the house with open door;
Birds come and cry there and twitter in the chimney -
But I go for ever and come again no more."
