My Ode to the Netherlands
Oh lovely Netherlands, you are now my second home.
You leave me thrilled and enchanted where ever I roam.
I smiled when floating down streets made from the sea,
Touring on charming glass covered canal boats with glee.
There’s beauty in the coolness of a windswept day,
As I rode the wind on my bicycle and joyously flew away.
Then I set out to visit famous paintings I was shown.
Each lovely museum has a quaint charm all its own.
One famous museum displayed art of Vincent van Gogh.
It has a cool theatre inside, most tourists don’t know.
I just had to visit Den Haag’s St. Mauritius to view
Vermeer’s “Girl with a pearl earring” and other art too.
I toured through Madame Tussaud’s Wax museum happily.
Johnny Depp and George Clooney were there waiting for me!
Oh lovely gardens of Keukenhof, my time’s worth BEST spent.
I’ll never forget your bright tulip hues with their heavenly scent.
Hartelijk bedankt oh lovely Netherlands, land of the free.
Alstublieft, alstublieft I beseech you, don’t forget me.
