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)

The timid cow


“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.”

(R.L. Stevenson in The cow)

Corner of rain


“Father of night, Father of day
Father who taketh the darkness away
Father who teacheth the bird to fly
Builder of rainbows up in the sky
Father of loneliness and pain
Father of love and Father of rain.”

(Bob Dylan in Father of Night)

De l’amusement sans fin


“Wer ist beglückter als du?

Nichts als Vergnügen und Ruh!
Spielwerk und Zucker vollauf, und noch Karossen im Lauf,
alles besorgt und bereit,
daß nur mein Prinzchen nicht schreit.
Was wird da künftig erst sein?
Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein.”

(F.W. Gotter in Wiegenlied)
