Rule Brittania!

Congratulations my dear Queen Elizabeth. Yes I know you might wonder why now because we have a very nice King in our own country but you are my Queen too because I love England.

Last week the Scots voted if they still wanted to be part of Great Britain or not and they chose to remain British. And that is why I congratulate you as they don’t call it Great Britiain for nowt you know.



When I was a child I had to learn all countries that you rule and point them out on the map. And I did my best to learn them all although I might have forgotten some now. Great Britain looks beautiful on the map of the world and I am so glad it stays that way.

So, congratulations are in order I think. Tonight I will raise my glass for you my dear Queen Elizabeth. And I will sing Rule Brittania!

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.
