The joyful gates


O enter with me the gates of delight,
The gates of the garden of man’s desire,
Where spirits, touched by heav’nly fire,
Have planted the trees of life.

(R.S. Bridges in Invocation to music)
Liège-Flémalle (B)

The entrance to paradise?


“And there shall you be queen; but I,
Shall I find entrance too?
Or must I roam eternity,
To search, sweetheart, for you?”

(Fr. Money-Coutts in Paradise regained)

Seraing (B)

Warm welcome way-in


”Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm

“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm””

(Bob Dylan in Shelter from the storm)

Closed in zebra


“Oh my only friend, my best beloved,

the gates are open in my house –
do not pass by like a dream.”

(R. Tagore in Gitanjali no. 22)

Still dreaming, still cold


“You left me standing out in the cold
People ask about you, I didn’t tell them everything I knew
Well, I’m trying to get closer but I’m still a million miles from you.”

(Bob Dylan in Million miles)
Liège (B)
