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)
Seraing (B)

The leopard has been laid down

"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb.
        And the leopard shall lie down with the kid,
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together,
        and a little child shall lead them.
They shall not hurt nor destroy
        in all my holy mountain ..."

(Isaiah XI)
Seraing (B)

The eye that sees everything

"Who then knows,
Who can now declare
Whence cometh creation?
He the Primal One whose
Eye controlleth all things,
He alone doth know it,
Or perchance even 
He knoweth it not!"

(G. Holst in Creation)
Seraing (B)

After that happy meal

"Als Mahl beganns. Und ist ein Fest geworden, 
kaum weiß man wie. 
Die hohen Flammen flackten, die Stimmen schwirrten, 
wirre Lieder klirrten aus Glas und Glanz, 
und endlich aus den reifgewordnen Takten:
entsprang der Tanz. Und alle riß er hin."

(R.M. Rilke in Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke)
Seraing (B)

All dreams collected in a tent

"Dark-eyed,
O woman of my dreams,
Ivory sandalled,
There is none like thee among the dancers,
None with swift feet.
I have not found thee in the tents,
In the broken darkness."

(E. Pound in Dance figure)
