Hopeless sadness in a green oasis

“Traurigkeit erfüllte sein Herz. Eine milde Traurigkeit, die ein ergebenes Lächeln erhellt,
wenn wir auf eine Hoffnung verzichten, an die wir in Wirklichkeit nie geglaubt haben.”

(M.Bánffy in In Stücke gerissen)

“Beyond the horizon, behind the sun
At the end of the rainbow life has only begun
In the long hours of twilight ‘neath the stardust above
Beyond the horizon it is easy to love.”

(Bob Dylan in Beyond the Horizon)

The lonely bridge

“There are bridges on the rivers,
As pretty as you please;
But the bow that bridges heaven,
And overtops the trees,
And builds a road from earth to sky,
Is prettier far than these.”

(Ch. Rossetti in Boats sail on the rivers)

The chain in the woods

“How calm it was! — The silence there
By such a chain was bound,
That even the busy woodpecker
Made stiller by her sound
The inviolable quietness …”

(P.B. Shelley in The recollection)
