This week's Friday Verses are written by Christopher Levenson. We selected his poem ‘Remembering the Flood’.
A personal account of the 1953 North Sea flood that struck the Netherlands, north-west Belgium, England and Scotland.
Every other Friday we treat you to beautiful verses by a poet from Flanders or the Netherlands. Sometimes an old forgotten poem, but mostly fresh verses by a young or unpublished poet.
All over the country young people still study the Dutch language and Netherlandic culture at educational and cultural institutions.
