This week's Friday Verses are written by Jan Geerts. We translated his poem ‘Laatste brieven’.
As Poet Laureate of Belgium, Kör wants everyone to feel the power of poetry, especially those who don't naturally come into contact with it.
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 Sometimes an old forgotten poem, but mostly fresh verses by a young or unpublished poet.
Over the centuries, many Dutch people have contributed to Asian culture and society in various ways.
