My Netherlands

my lowland and its flatness
westernmost always my sea 
dunes and dikes protective mattress 
villagers sing their warm heartfelt plea 

bracing fragrances excite 
salty winds homely statements 
windmills and hamlets always in sight  
wooden shoes vocalize on pavements

white clouds and greenest meadows 
nowhere views without a bike
lots of white and black dots create cows
always water behind the dike

    like the use of your word 'homely'--an example of semantic change...once in english this was the common meaning, now homely is usually used as nearly a syn. for ugly..... great job...
