Stairway to Heaven

I have always had a love of staircases.  Maybe it’s because they seem to be full of romance or maybe it's because they bring me back to my high school days when the last song at every dance was inevitably "Stairway to Heaven" by rock legend Led Zeppelin.

I hope you enjoy this collection of staircases alongside the lyrics to the 1971 hit - which, by the way, aren’t what I remembered!!!

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.

Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,


Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.

In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.

And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.

There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last.
When all is one and one is all

Leslie don't take this the wrong way but I'm cursing you right now because I'm going to be singing that song for the rest of the evening. Those staircases are absolutely amazing! Some of them even made me a bit dizzy and love the one with the slide on the side. Fabulous images!

And they are definitely "heaven"....magnificent staircases! many exquisite ones and creative ones, such as the "piano keys" staircase and the "book" staircase!
Have a wonderful week!

What beauties, Leslie. Styles for every genre -- modern, classical, humorous, whimsical -- but the two that speak to my heart are the second one (Myriamseb) and the Da Vinci staircase.
