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."

(Ch.G. Rossetti in Sing-song: a nursery rhyme book)

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.”

(G.B. Hough in Ode To A Dead Theatre (Morecambe Winter Gardens Uk))
Bottrop (D)

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”

(J.N. Perinacci in The bridge to nowhere)

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."

(R.L. Stevenson in Songs of travel and other verses no. 16)

After that happy meal

"Als Mahl beganns. Und ist ein Fest geworden, 
kaum weiß man wie. 
Die hohen Flammen flackten, die Stimmen schwirrten, 
wirre Lieder klirrten aus Glas und Glanz, 
und endlich aus den reifgewordnen Takten:
entsprang der Tanz. Und alle riß er hin."

(R.M. Rilke in Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke)
