The painted garden

The painted garden

"Beauty is but a painted hell :
        Aye me, aye me,
Shee wounds them that admire it,
Shee kils them that desire it.
        Giue her pride but fuell,
        No fire is more cruell."

(Th. Campion in Beauty is but a painted hell)
Liège-Bressoux (B)

Come in …!

Come in ...!

“’T was in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm””

(Bob Dylan in Shelter from the storm)
Liège-Bressoux (B)

Zum Sehen geboren

Zum Sehen geboren

"Zum Sehen geboren,
Zum Schauen bestellt,
Dem Turme geschworen
Gefällt mir die Welt.
Ich blick' in die Ferne,
Ich seh' in der Näh'
Den Mond und die Sterne,
Den Wald und das Reh."

(J.W. von Goethe in Faust)

Out of order

“Was it a careless mower
Cut your blossom in twain?
I hope his hand will be slower
When he sees you again.”

(M.B. Smedley in Fairies)

Let us play!

Let us play!

"When the voices of children are heard on the green 
And laughing is heard on the hill, 
My heart is at rest within my breast 
And everything else is still."

(W. Blake in Songs of innocence and experience)
Sclayn (B)
