The bottles are not for drinking

“The delights of the bottle and the charms of good wine,
To the power and pleasures of love must resign:
Though the night in the joys of good drinking be past,
The debauches but till the next morning will last.
But love’s great debauch is more lasting and strong;
For that often lasts a man all his life long.”

(M. Locke in the song Delights of the bottle)
Genk (B)

Our thrones decay

“Still flows the ancient fount sublime; —
But, ah, for my heart, shed tears, shed tears;
Not it, but love, has scorn of time,
It turns to dust beneath the years.”

(G.W. Russell from Homeward: Songs by the Way)
Heusden-Zolder (B)
