Nieuwjaarsgedicht: The Gate of the Year

The Gate of the Year

And I said to the man
who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light
that I may tread safely
into the unknown.”

And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness
and put your hand
into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you
better than light
and safer than a known way.”

So I went forth,
and finding the Hand of God,
trod gladly into the night.
And He led me towards the hills
and the breaking of day
in the lone East.

Ik wens jullie een heel mooi en goed 2016!
