between fallen leaves

golden years lay

waiting for destination


far away calmes

the cold wind

from empty iceland


we measure

the heavy weight

of duty

and virtue


we don’t  count the days

for a moment we wait

we have so much

in mind


to leave breathe

love and

let go

    Geachte heer Blokland, beste Kees,
    Een prachtig gedicht! Het schijnt dat we gedeelde interesses hebben. Gedichten en leiderschap. Zo hebben we net een essay geschreven Engaging leadership ‘a new road taken’. Deze subtitel afgeleid van het bekende gedicht zoals hieronder vermeld.

    The Road Not Taken   by Robert Frost

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference

    ….. Wanneer er interesse is voor het boekje dan stuur ik het graag.

    hartelijke groet,

    Paul Bloem
