When all has done …


“What shall I do now? What shall I do?

I shall rush out as I am, and walk the street
With my hair down, so. What shall we do to-morrow?
What shall we ever do?”

(T.S. Eliot in Waste Land, 1922)

Shut down!


“You took the silver, you took the gold
You left me standing out in the cold …”

(Bob Dylan in Million Miles)
Liège-Bressoux (B)

But this wheel is dying


“It’s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying

Fame and honor never seem to fade
The fire’s gone out but the light is never dying
Who says I can’t get heavenly aid?”

(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talkin’)
Heusden-Zolder (B)

A frightened face in the grey wall


“You need not be frightened,
For Satan’s not there.
He lurks around poverty;
He lurks around gold;
He’s always on duty
Seeking a soul.”

(J.E. McGirt from Avenging the Maine, a Drunken A.B. and Other Poems)
Nerem (B)

Just the goal stands up!


“”Is football playing
Along the river-shore,
With lads to chase the leather,
Now I stand up no more?”

Ay, the ball is flying,
The lads play heart and soul;
The goal stands up, the keeper
Stands up to keep the goal. “

(A.E. Housman in A Shropshire lad, no. 27)
