Zij die waren/ Those who were

I was cycling in the early morning sun, when this golden scene caught my eye & I couldn’t help feeling a careful sense of happiness amid the pain of the tragedy which befell us.

(You’ll find an translation of the Dutch poem below the picture)


Those who were
those who walked
those who stood
side by side

We who are
we who walk
we who stand
side by side
