It is colorful along the track

"When I bring to you colour'd toys, my child,
I understand why there is such a play of colours 
On clouds, on water, and why flow'rs are painted in tints:
When I give colour'd toys to you, my child."

(R. Tagore in The Crescent Moon, no. 9)

What a joy it can be to renovate

"All are architects of Fate,
   Working in these walls of Time;
Some with massive deeds and great,
   Some with ornaments of rhyme.

Nothing useless is, or low;
   Each thing in its place is best;
And what seems but idle show
   Strengthens and supports the rest."

(H.W. Longfellow in The builders)

Where my car is almost buried

"Could we dig up this long-buried treasure,
Were it worth the pleasure,
We never could learn love's song,
We are parted too long."

(O. Wild in Roses and Rue)

Small is Beautiful!

"Auch kleine Dinge können uns entzücken,
Auch kleine Dinge können teuer sein.
Bedenkt, wie gern wir uns mit Perlen schmücken;
Sie werden schwer bezahlt und sind nur klein."

(P. Heyse in Italienisches Liederbuch, no. 109)

We only take the bus


“And the last bus
Comes letting dark
Umbrella’s out –
Black flowers, black flowers.

And lives go on.”

(Donald Justice in his wall poem Bus Stop)
