Solo on an old wall

Solo on an old wall

"But age apace
Comes at last to all;
And a lone house filled
With the cricket's call;
And the scampering mouse
In the hollow wall."

(Walter de la Mare in Alone)
Namur (B)

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

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 ..."

(W. Blake in An Imitation to Spenser)

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)
Ougrée (B)
