My ode to the Netherlands
a moonlit stroll - -
ladies in underwear
wave from windows

tea in a  café  - -
the smell of coffee and
marijuana 

tourists yawn - -
customs men search a coach 
from Amsterdam

written 21st April for Elly’s contest

wish I'd been permitted to write about the beautiful tulips, windmills and cheese, LOL...

The Hunter of the Netherlands
Needlessly dying 
Time & time again
Drifting in the clouds
Soaring through the static air
Until finally I descend
And fall victim to the snare
Set by the Hunter 
Of the Netherlands
The Hunter is there
Lurking in the shadows
I never feel safe
I never feel alone
For he is always watching me
Hunting me
Within my dreams.

My Ode to the Netherlands
Forefathers were Dutch
Came through in the clutch

Never needed no crutch
Thank you very much

Ain’t never been there
(No money to spare)

Hope Elly will share
expensive plane fare

If I win her contest
I shall not protest

Quite sure she’ll detest
and think I’m a pest…

This is really a monorhyme but I cheated and made it a couplet, so what?

Fireworks
They are loud and noisy
They are for special occasions
Christmas and New Years Eve
And Guy Fawkes Night
They are bright and high up in the sky
They strike through the sky at an amazing pace
When fireworks go off with a bang
The crowd will cheer
Fire works are in every country
From Australia to America
From New Zealand to the Netherlands
They will go off with a bang

When I Consider the Rage in Me
When I Consider the Rage in Me

When I consider the rage in me
That life should end – for life should be—
That heartbeat---is a sacred thing—
Beat --my heart!-- and think-- my brain!
‘twas dark before I op’ed my eye,
And dark again one day ‘twill be,
But this is my day, and so I cry
When I consider the Rage in me.

Premium Member Trixie my Muse is Obstinate
Winged horses could not get me to do that 
She says to me with her nose stuck up.
She can be prissy when she wants to be.

Trixie is in obstinate mode
I try to reason with her 
But I am no match
For this particular strand of my imagination

Two seconds later she rides off  to the Netherlands 
On the back of a white winged horse 
I resist giving her a friendly wave
Where do you think she learned obstinance?

Holland

In Holland this sweet clog walking land
have too many cows realising methane gas into the air.
There are many gas explosions in Holland
no one has yet to connect the gas with the cattle.
But it is difficult for them the have fewer cows.
Once I met Prince Hans of Netherlands, I drove his stuff up
to his farmhouse and he never paid me, and that is way
they are successful living in the middle of Europe and
somehow voiding paying tax.

Premium Member My Ode to the Netherlands
My knowledge of The Netherlands
Came from a beloved children's book.
I found the tale quite so charming
I wanted to take a close look
At a land that could spawn a child
As brave and as strong as was  he.
Hans with his finger in the dike
Was a folklore hero to me

And when he won his silver skates,
I was filled with an honest pride.
My book fell apart and  my dream
Of sailing away on the tide.
At home in The United States.
We raise tulips on our estates.
