Was ist Winter in dieser Welt?

“Der Winter mag scheiden, der Frühling vergehn,
der Sommer mag verwelken, das Jahr verwehn,
Du kehrst mir zurück, gewiß, du wirst mein,
ich hab es versprochen, ich harre treulich dein.”

(Chr. Morgenstern)
Duisburg (D)

Smoking is allowed here

"The smoker smokes, through smoke
He indulges smoky speculations.

Which keeps his thinking among the smoke;
The smoker smokes, through smoke

For smoking pleases him greatly,
Insofar as it is his intention.

The smoker smokes, through smoke
He indulges smoky speculations."

(D. Wyatt in The smoker smokes)

Sporty Ougrée is sitting at the bar


“There’s a place for everything,
Everything, anything, 
There’s a place for everything 
Where it ought to be: 
For a chicken, the hen’s wing; 
For poison, the bee’s sting;
For almond-blossom, Spring; 
A beerhouse for me.” 

(R. Graves in Strong beer)
Seraing-Ougrée (B)

Rockers filled with fantasy

“And so it did happen like it could have been foreseen
The timeless explosion of fantasy’s dream
At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
Tumbled all down into pieces”

(Bob Dylan in Ballad in plain D)

Oh my god! No more beer and chips …

"They sell good Beer at Haslemere
And under Guildford Hill.
At Little Cowfold, as I've been told,
A beggar may drink his fill:
There is a good brew in Amberley too,
And by the bridge also;
But the swipes they take in at Washington Inn
Is the very best Beer I know, the very best Beer I know."

(J.H. Belloc in West Sussex drinking song)
