A painted house is like a poem

“In the end, a finished polished piece…
Makes the artist, happy and at peace.

The work is finally done…
What hard work, finished-Now 
feelings of enjoyed fun.”

(M. Gale in A painted house is like a poem)
Châtelet (B)

In this street some rain may fall

"The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea."

(R.L. Stevenson in Rain)

Dying landscape

Dying landscape

“If the day is done,
if birds sing no more,
if the wind has flagged tired,
then draw the veil of darkness thick upon me,
even as thou hast wrapt the earth
with the coverlet of sleep
and tenderly closed the petals
of the drooping lotus at dusk.”

(R. Tagore from Gitanjali)

Chant of workmen

Chant of workmen

“In this street
There is no beginning, no movement, no peace and no end
But noise without speech, food without taste.
Without delay, without haste
We would build the beginning and the end of this street.
We build the meaning:
A Church for all
And a job for each
Each man to his work”

(T.S. Eliot in The Rock)
