Anneke Brassinga: 'Hoog Veluws lied'

Veluwe Canticle

Wee creature swims
in the Gietense Flessen.
A sea of gold stems that
keep blue sea secret.

Floating in fluid glass
between heaven and hollow,
cool-softly stroked,
no human near.

Redhead in upper realms:
small water without end.
Small man
in one vast span.

To see the original Dutch poem, go to here.
