Rhyming on the North Sea

Rhyming on the North Sea

The awesome ocean speaks with many voices,

winds enhance the spectacle with eerie noises.

Young kids fly their kites that seagulls can defy,

Intrepid surfers skim the waves and fly.

The mighty waves roll, foam and roar,

They break on Noordwijk’s pristine shore

in high tide, low tide that repeat, reveal

eternity that pantheistically we feel.

We see the myriad coloured shells

and listen to the stories Neptune tells:

All life comes from the sea

–not only fish, but creatures yet to be.

On January first we brave the beach

It’s Nieuwjahrsduik as eager swimmers bet to reach

the magic of the frothing sea — at four degrees —

We run ashore and drink jenever not to freeze!

    Dear Al

    Happy new year to both of you and the russian crowd. You probably don’t know, but Zeid will receive from the American Society the Global Butcher Medal”for his outstanding contribution to the development of the international human rights law”.
    Correect. He is a butcher and butchered the program during his tenure.

    How deep can the Society sink.
