The new building appears on the horizon

“All are architects of Fate,
Working in these walls of Time;
Some with massive deeds and great,
Some with ornaments of rhyme.”

(H.W. Longfellow in The Builders)
Liège (B)

View on various time panels

“Over these things I could not see;
These were the things that bounded me;
And I could touch them with my hand,
Almost, I thought, from where I stand.
And all at once things seemed so small
My breath came short, and scarce at all.”

(E. St. Vincent Millay in Renascence)
Brussel (B)

Some red spots in a dry emptiness


“Here is no water but only rock
Rock and no water and the sandy road
The road winding above among the mountains
Which are mountains of rock without water
If there were water we could stop and drink …”

(T.S. Eliot in The Waste Land)
Namur (B)

Colourful are the memories


“There are
No clocks on the wall,
And no time
No shadows that move …”

(Langston Hughes in Tearless)
Liège (B)

The corner in green

The corner in green

“The grass is thick and cool, it lets us lie.
Kissed upon either cheek and either eye,
I turn to thee as some green afternoon
Turns toward sunset, and is loth to die;
Ah God, ah God, that day should be so soon.”

(A. Ch. Swinburne in In the orchard)
Verviers (B)
