But this wheel is dying


“It’s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying

Fame and honor never seem to fade
The fire’s gone out but the light is never dying
Who says I can’t get heavenly aid?”

(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talkin’)
Heusden-Zolder (B)

When will they serve the beer?

"Here,
With my beer
I sit,
While golden moments flit:
Alas!
They pass
Unheeded by:
And, as they fly,
I,
Being dry,
Sit, idly sipping here
My beer."

(G. Arnold in Beer)

Miners stayed behind as a vague photo on the wall

“Black as coal they fell to their knees
For no one could hear their pleas
They wheezed and wheezed until no more
For the air they breathed was poor.”

(M. Moise in Ode to the miners)

The door has remained open, the miners never come back

"And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted -- "Open then the Door!
"You know how little while we have to stay,
"And, once departed, may return no more.""

(Based on a Persian text by Hakim Omar Khayyám)

An open storage

“Funny, how the things you have the hardest time parting with
Are the things you need the least”

(Bob Dylan in Lonesome day blues)
