The Older Gentleman on his Fiets

The older gentleman on his fiets

With the backpack for cross-country hitchhiking

His satchels and the basket full of excellent things

that kept him steady while the years made him wobbly

While he rode alongside the tram

With the sturdiest smile on his face

As he rode his fiets

To the sunny center


fiets: is the Dutch word for bicycle/bike
