and gentle wind,
play on and ripple soothingly

Red bricks form walls, aged centuries,
when up they rise from water's way
to pave a quay - for barges to unload
where waterways are major streets
to give the town its life.
Behind the quay, the bricks rise up again,
and then - much higher now - lie down once more:
To pave the narrow streets that look now down
upon the quay, along the waterway - 'the old c****.'
And then across these narrow streets,
some bricks a third time reach for heaven...
for people building there the typical facades
of Dutch and narrow houses.
The other bricks do pave the streets in front,
and where they meet the waterway again,
they arch to bridges old a thousand years by now.
Embracing thousand years of people living there,
with one glance of my eye,
that's where I walked, in Holland.
And on her bicycle, a woman passed me by.
She looked me in the eye and asked:
"Are you a real angel?"

more curious to see and feel who's there:
Allowed they feel
to be the love they are
