Stopping prohibition and a water tower

“There will be quiet open spaces,
and shady towers sweet with bells,
and quiet folks with quiet faces,
walking among these miracles.”

(H. Wolfe in The dream-city)

Don’t fly away from me!

"Often in the white clouds that appear on the horizon 
It seems that as an angel you fly towards me, 
And hold out your arms never to leave me again.
Ah, tell me, ah, say if there is anything 
that conjures up an image of me for you!"

(Unidentified author in All'amante lontano, transl. by L. Claycomb)

Dark clouds over our industrial landscape

"Wakonda Wakonda!
Deep rolls thy thunder!
Wakonda!
They speak to me, my friend;
The Weeping Ones,
Hark! In deep rolling thunder calling.
Wakonda!
O friend, they speak to me.
Far above, hark,
Deep voiced in thunder calling."

(A. Farwell in Inketunga's thunder song)

Rusty structures in a landscape

"Man passes down the way of years,
And ruins mark his trail;
He buildeth and the hand of time
Wipes out his structures frail."

(Ch. I. Ives in The All-enduring)
