A supple dance of a dancer torn into pieces

"The girl goes dancing there
On the leaf-sown, new-mown, smooth
Grass plot of the garden;
Escaped from bitter youth,
Escaped out of her crowd,
Or out of her black cloud.
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!

If strange men come from the house
To lead her away, do not say
That she is happy being crazy;
Lead them gently astray;
Let her finish her dance,
Let her finish her dance.
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!"

(W.B. Yeats in Sweet dancer)

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."

(J.P. Scott in the song The voice in the wilderness)

The eye that sees everything

"Who then knows,
Who can now declare
Whence cometh creation?
He the Primal One whose
Eye controlleth all things,
He alone doth know it,
Or perchance even 
He knoweth it not!"

(G. Holst in Creation)

Es geschah am helllichten Tag!

“Im Wald, im Wald ist der Liebe Reich,
Da singen die Vöglein auf jedem Zweig,
Da wiegt die Blumen ein kosender Wind,
Und ich wieg und küsse dich, herz’ges Kind,
Im Wald, im kühlen Walde.”

(Theodor Körner in Waldfahrt)

Danger de mort

Danger de mort

“O Herr, gib jedem seinen eignen Tod.
Das Sterben, das aus jenem Leben geht,
darin er Liebe hatte, Sinn und Not.”
