Past, present, future (Or: Poetry about the coronavirus)

Last week Marco and I noticed another poem hanging on the wall of one of the buildings in the city centre:

It’s also on the Grote Markt, across the street from MediaMarkt at the Lust poffertjes restaurant (Instagram | Facebook). In English it reads:

A while ago there was war and occupation here
Even so peace, freedom and joy returned
The sun always came back from behind the clouds
Every time
This will happen again now, we don’t know when
but it will happen for sure

We live in the now
With the joy from before
And the hope for tomorrow
The sun will come again

The Hague,
Annette, 90 years

I blogged about a previous poem at the same location last month.
