Silos mark the desolate crossroads

"Es steht ein Pfahl, ein bunter, 
Am Scheideweg im Feld: 
Der weist ins Dorf hinunter 
Und in die weite Welt. 
In Osten oder Westen,

(R. Baumbach in Frau Holde)

Baby, I’ll be at the same hotel”

That I may tread where all my fathers trod.
Nay, nay, my soul, no house of God is there,
But only God.”
