Some black birds in a desolate garden


“Oh, says the rook and eke the crow,

The reason why in black we go
Because our love has us forsook,
So pity us poor crow and rook!”

(J. Clare in Birds’ lament)
Liège (B)

He thought he saw an 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 Caroll in Sylvie and Bruno)
Moelingen (B)

If there were dreams to sell, what would you buy?

"A cottage lone and still,
With bowers nigh,
Shadowy, my woes to still,
Until I die."

(Brian Holmes in Dream-Pedlary)
Liège (B)

Even the door to the toilet is open

"Fair the day shine as it shone on my childhood -
Fair shine the day on the house with open door;
Birds come and cry there and twitter in the chimney -
But I go for ever and come again no more."

(R.L. Stevenson in Songs of travel and other verses no. 16)
Liège (B)

If you’re looking for a window …


“Build me a cabin in Utah
Marry me a wife, catch rainbow trout
Have a bunch of kids who call me “Pa”
That must be what it’s all about
That must be what it’s all about”

(Bob Dylan in Sign on the window)
Limbourg (B)
