The door is open and the workers are gone

The door is open and the workers are gone

"Mon espérance n'est pas encore perdue, 
Ô patrie douce aimée, 
de trouver sur ton sol 
un coin pour m'y établir 
avant que ma fin n'arrive..." 

(Folk song Chant du laboureur)
Liège-Chênée (B)  

No more workers will be changing clothes here

No more workers changing clothes ...

“My father lies black and hushed
Beneath white hospital sheets
He collapsed at work
His iron left him
Slow and quiet he sank.”

(R.W. Thomas in The worker)
Liège-Chênée (B)

 

Red bottles standing in line

Red bottles standing in line

"We will drink from God's bottles.
Apples are God's bottles: the sweet juice of the apple
God has placed in His own bottle.
What a beautiful rosy-red bottle it is!"

(G. Bachlund in the song God's bottles)
Liège-Chênée (B)

An open door showing ordered numbers

An open door showing ordered numbers

"One, two, three, our number is right
Let's sing and cheer our hearts tonight.
We sum, we sum, we sum up all delights, delights in one,
in sweet delights of time and tune.
I will not count, I will not count, I will not count
I will not count the care times bring,
I'll only, I'll only count my time to sing."

(Henry Purcell in the song One, two, three)
Liège-Chênée (B)

Fallen ropes

Fallen ropes

"And there the pearl-ropes fall like shawls
With a noise like marine waterfalls.
And "Another little drink
wouldn't do us any harm"
Pierces through the sabbatical calm.
And that is the place for me!"

(E. Sitwell in Scotch rhapsody)
Seraing (B)
