A Prince and Princess in a Castle

This is the place where we used to play when we were young. Pretending to be rich in a tower that was once a ruin and we found each other in the Summer evening Sun.

We danced our first dance that evening on the rooftop of that ruin and both got lost in our first real kiss. We enjoyed a glass of lemonade and made believe it was wine and then we danced again another evening after tea in the setting Sun, hidden for the world.

Our laughter filled the air and the light of a thousand candles from imaginary chandeliers made sparkles in our eyes. A life without worries ahead we were the Prince and Princess in our own Castle.

This is the place where we once were children and where we used to play.


Leendert van Gemeren

Dit ben ik, Leendert. Ik ben een beetje ouderwets en houd van dingen die geweest zijn, bijvoorbeeld oude Engelse series op TV zoals All Creatures Great And Small, mechanische horloges, bifocale brillen en oude langspeelplaten. Ik houd niet van moderne dingen en werk regelmatig aan een ouderwetse modelspoorbaan. Ik volg Jezus en schrijf mijn gedichten soms ook over Hem maar ik schrijf ook verhalen over het leven. Excentriek. Op feestjes ben ik vaak te vinden in de keuken.

This is me, Leendert. I am a little bit old-fashioned and I love things from the past, old series like All Creatures Great And Small, mechanical wristwatches, bi-focal glasses and vinyl records for example. I am not keen on modern things and I often work on this old style model railway. I follow Jesus and sometimes write a poem about Him but I also write about my life. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
