Tintin in Charleroi, fleeing from the elephant

"He thought he saw an Elephant
That practised on a fife:
He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife.
'At length I realize,' he said,
'The bitterness of Life!'"

(Lewis Carroll no title)
Charleroi (B)

Solo on an old wall

Solo on an old wall

"But age apace
Comes at last to all;
And a lone house filled
With the cricket's call;
And the scampering mouse
In the hollow wall."

(Walter de la Mare in Alone)
Namur (B)

There is a pain in playing

There is a pain in playing
“I am moved by fancies that are curled
Around these images, and cling:
The notion of some infinitely gentle
Infinitely suffering thing.”

(T.S. Eliot in Preludes IV)

Echo’s on a wall

Echo's on a wall

“An echo it may be, floating past;
A shadow it may be, fading fast:
Shadow or echo, we ride, we ride
We ride by moor and hill.”
