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)

Where the work has been laid down
“Lay down your weary tune, lay down

Lay down the song you strum
And rest yourself ’neath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum.”

(Bob Dylan in Lay down your weary tune)

In this brief transit where the dreams cross
The dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying
(Bless me father) though I do not wish to wish these things …”

Beauty lift at the gate of Eden

Beauty lift at the gate of Eden
“Don’t trust me to show you beauty
When beauty may only turn to rust
If you need somebody you can trust, trust yourself.”

In this brief transit where the dreams cross
The dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying …”
