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)

No more singing in the stadium


“Why — do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing — too loud?
But — I can sing a little minor,
Timid as a bird.”

(E. Dickinson in Further poems of Emily Dickinson)

Walking to a dead workshop


“My feet are so tired, my brain is so wired
And the clouds are weeping.

Did I hear someone tell a lie?
Did I hear someone’s distant cry?”

(Bob Dylan in Love sick)

But soon it will be Christmas and we will be happy again!

The door has remained open, the miners never come back

"And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted -- "Open then the Door!
"You know how little while we have to stay,
"And, once departed, may return no more.""
