From the blue sky of Pilatus Kulm …
… down towards the Vierwaldstättersee.
Then by gondola above the woods,
back to the flatland …
… back to Lucerne and the blue of its Roiss river.

Despite the sun still high,
when the longest shadow reaches the middle of the lake
It is time for setting head to a safe harbour.
All the shades of green and blue that adorned the day
rapidly turn into black and white on the lake surface,
while the sky warms up a last time before darkness.
That’s the moment when the steam wheels sail off Lucerne
drive in line through the strait of the lake
and pay a visit there, where this country was born on August 1, 1291.
… and only by then the first fires are started to fight the long, Alpine night.
