bus stop

This bus stop in the (only) village on Schiermonnikoog gives you the chance to read while you wait. It shows a poem written by Jacob Fenenga, which is part of the Taalroute (lit. Language route) that shows poems on 10 different public spots on the island.
"Unfortunately" the poem is written in the Friesian language, and that makes it very difficult to understand if you are not familiar with it. But I like the idea of publishing poems this way!

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Even Friesian, Marleen, it would make about as much sense as some of the bus schedules I puzzle over while waiting for buses.

  2. I think that is a good idea. On one wall should be a translation.
    Have a happy weekend :)

  3. A great idea. I have not heard before.
    But I think that if we had these poems at the bus stop, someone always make a mess poems.
    Have a nice weekend

  4. Het blijven Friezen he, jammer dat het niet tweetalig is.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
