De Zee ("The Sea")
Written in my mother tongue Dutch when I was 9 years old!
I hear the sea rushing
I hear the wind blowing
I hear the waves slosh,
they collide against each other
I am on top of the dike
of an unknown neighborhood
The seagulls fly around
and I'm alone here on the ground
I'm watching the ships passing by
,and the wind blows through my hair.
I'm at the floodgate
and am now far from home .....!
