Some things of beauty and firewood


“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness …”

(J. Keats in Endymion no. 1)
Ombret (B)

Lovely Lourdes and some garments


“Bernadette, people are searchin’ for the kind of love that we possess
Some go on searchin’ their whole life through
And never find the love I’ve found in you …”

(Four Tops in Bernadette)
Liège (B)

Monuments of consumerism

“In den angenehmen Büschen,
Wo sich Licht und Schatten mischen,
Suchet sich in stiller Lust
Aug’ und Herze zu erfrischen;
Dann erheb’t sich aus der Brust
Mein zufriedenes Gemüte,
Und lobsingt des Schöpfers Güte …”

(B.H. Brockes in Irdisches Vergnügen in Gott)
Bottrop (D)

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)
Bottrop (D)

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)
