Spring Cleaning

Yes I know it’s only January and it is way too early for Spring Cleaning but as some of you may have noticed I have cleaned up the Poems category at my website. I did it for a good reason which I will explain to you.

When I started writing poetry over 15 years ago I wanted nothing more than publishing books with my poems and a couple of years ago I succeeded. I had some success selling my first two books, the second one in English called A taste of love.

And then it became a little quiet. A good friend said to me a few weeks ago, “Leendert, if you keep posting your poems at your website nobody will ever buy your book.” And that made me think which -as you can see- resulted in a clean up at my website.

From now on there will be a few poems for you so you can see if you like them. And if you do you can buy my book in my webshop. Who knows, I might even put a little extra presents in the envelope for you when you do.

Go to my webshop to buy my book: Webshop.


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.
