“Nature’s first green is gold,Her hardest hue to hold.Her early leaf’s a flower;But only so an hour.Then leaf subsides to leaf.So Eden sank to grief,So dawn goes down to day.Nothing gold can stay.”
(R. Frost in Nothing gold can stay)Liège (B)
"The ruins of time build mansions in Eternity."
(W. Blake in a letter to W. Hayley)
“I’d like to help you but I’m in a bit of a jam
I’ll call you tomorrow if there’s phones where I am
Baby, caught between heaven and hell.”
(Bob Dylan in Under your spell)
