Ja, zelfs op de noodlog doe ik gewoon mee hoor. Dus hier mijn bijdrage aan deze DiDi met als thema 'Fietsen/Bike'. Leuk, echt Hollands thema; wij als fietsland.

THE FIRST BIKE

Do you remember
that your first bike
with all its magic,
had a smell?
Do you remember?

Do you remember
when you first saw it
and all your senses
went on full alert?
Do you remember?

Do you remember
how everything about it –
the scary learning,
Dad's careful teaching,
the moment he let go of the seat without telling you,
the first time you went out on your own,
all these filled a new world with magic,
Do you remember?

Do you remember
how you lived every moment
as a child?

Do you forget
how easily it's brought back?

Will you remember?
