Marcus has exhbitied some of his works in shop windows around the centre of Bruges. Here is one example.
Sencha Green is from Leaves Painted Gold to Please a Child.
This is my day and I will make the most
Of every minute. Marmalade on toast
And muesli mixed with yoghurt to begin it.
This is my day: the hours were freely given
For me to savour, like a taste of heaven,
Feasting on every moment’s glorious flavour.
This is my day: the people I will meet
Walking, who knows, along this very street
Or gracing shops that never seem to close.
This is my day: a pot of Sencha Green
Lightens my head and banishes my spleen.
The darkness of the dreary night has fled.
This is your day, so make of it a blend
Of happiness and laughter to the end.
When offered more, serenely answer “Yes!”
To Pascal and the esteemed clientele of the BRUGS THEEHUIS.
