After the farmer has left the field

"The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord.
Make straight in the desert a high way, a high way for our God."

Cathedral of Agriculture

Cathedral of Agriculture

“No gray cathedral, wide and wondrous fair,
That I may tread where all my fathers trod.
Nay, nay, my soul, no house of God is there,
But only God.”

The gate to a pastoral idyll

The gate to a pastoral idyll

"The friendly cow all red and white,
I love with all my heart.
She gives me cream with all her might,
To eat with apple tart.

She wanders lowing here and there,
And yet she cannot stray,
All in the pleasant open air,
The pleasant light of day;

And blown by all the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
She walks among the meadow grass
And eats the meadow flowers."

(R.L. Stevenson in A child's garden of verses)
Eben-Emael (B)

A lonely field

A lonely field

"There are two trees in a lonely field;
They breathe a spell to me;
A dreary thought their dark boughs yield,
All waving solemnly."

(E. Brontë)
