The painted garden

The painted garden

"Beauty is but a painted hell :
        Aye me, aye me,
Shee wounds them that admire it,
Shee kils them that desire it.
        Giue her pride but fuell,
        No fire is more cruell."

(Th. Campion in Beauty is but a painted hell)
Liège-Bressoux (B)

Over the wall

Over the wall

"Up in the air and over the wall,
  Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
  Over the countryside -"

(R.L. Stevenson in A child's garden of verses)

Words of wisdom

"In lucent words my darkling verses dight,
And wash my earthy mind in thy clear streams,
That wisdom may descend in fairy dreams ..."

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)

Where the wind is whispering at a closed door

Where the wind is whispering
“Last night the wind was whisperin’, I was trying to make out what it was
Last night the wind was whisperin’ somethin’—I was trying to make out what it was
I tell myself something’s comin’
But it never does.”

(Bob Dylan in Lonesome day blues)
