A chair waiting for the summer to come

"When summer comes I’ll steal away
And find the land of shining day;
I’ll rest beside the singing streams
And make myself a house of dreams."

(H. Taylor in When summer comes)
Bottrop (D)

Silos mark the desolate crossroads

"Es steht ein Pfahl, ein bunter, 
Am Scheideweg im Feld: 
Der weist ins Dorf hinunter 
Und in die weite Welt. 
In Osten oder Westen, 
Wo find ich wohl das Glück? 
Ich glaub' es ist am besten 
Ich kehre zu ihr zurück."

(R. Baumbach in Frau Holde)
Ans (B)

Cathedral of Agriculture

Cathedral of Agriculture

“No gray cathedral, wide and wondrous fair,
That I may tread where all my fathers trod.
Nay, nay, my soul, no house of God is there,
But only God.”

(M. Coleridge in There)
Wagnelée (B

A protecting veil

A protecting veil

“Who lifteth the veil of what is to come?
Who painteth the shadows that are beneath
The wide-winding caves of the peopled tomb?
Or uniteth the hopes of what shall be
With the fears and the love for that which we see?

(P.B. Shelley in On death)
Balen (B)

Unknown faces at some silo’s

Unknown faces at some silo's

“… and they went
Into a world of unknown faces, where
It may be there are faces waiting them,
Faces of friendly strangers, not the long
Intolerable monotony of friends.”

(A. Symons in The Wanderer)
Eben-Emael (B)
