Flamme empor


When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. And when you're surrounded by lots of wooden offcuts, every one of them looks like another bench.

And so I've started on two more bitsa-benches made from bits o' this and bits o' that, to replace the sawn-off sleeper-logs around the fireplace.

Flamme empor, Flamme empor.
Steige mit loderndem Scheine
auf die Gebirge vom Rheine
glühend empor, glühend empor.
