Just the doves are playing

Just the doves are playing

“When the voices of children are heard on the green
And laughing is heard on the hill,
My heart is at rest within my breast
And everything else is still.”

(W. Blake from Songs of Innocence and Experience)
Liège (B)

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)

When a lamb is getting old

When a lamb is getting old

"Though I was born in April's prime,
    With many another lamb,
Yet, thinking now of all my years,
    What am I but a tough old ram?"

(W.H. Davies in April's lambs)

Aliments pour oiseaux

Aliments pour oiseaux

“The birds that sing on autumn eves
Among the golden-tinted leaves,
Are but the few that true remain
Of budding May’s rejoicing train.”

(R.S. Bridges in The birds that sing …)

If dogs run free

If dogs run free

“If dogs run free, then what must be
Must be, and that is all
True love can make a blade of grass
Stand up straight and tall
In harmony with the cosmic sea
True love needs no company
It can cure the soul, it can make it whole
If dogs run free.”

(B. Dylan in If dogs run free)
Grace-Berleur (B)
