An easy chair for the dustman

"At night when everyone's asleep
It must be very late! I creep
Softly down the darkened stairs
To the big room where we have prayers,
And, standing at the window,
I watch the Dustman going by.
Perched up on his high seat he looks
Like charioteers in those old books,
And his long coat, when the lights are dim,
Makes funny shadows all over him."

(S. O'Sullivan in The dustman)

But soon it will be Christmas and we will be happy again!

When will they serve the beer?

"Here,
With my beer
I sit,
While golden moments flit:
Alas!
They pass
Unheeded by:
And, as they fly,
I,
Being dry,
Sit, idly sipping here
My beer."

(G. Arnold in Beer)

A chair waiting for the summer to come

"When summer comes I’ll steal away
And find the land of shining day;
I’ll rest beside the singing streams
And make myself a house of dreams."

(H. Taylor in When summer comes)

Talking in empty spaces

“What shall we use to fill the empty
Spaces where we used to talk
How shall I fill the final places
How shall I complete the wall”
