    A Poem

    by filipdebont Written Jun 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the most beautiful one

    Favorite thing: De Paterberg is the mooiste

    Rosten, luister es hier. Als ge wilt vliegen . . .
    de Paterberg is de schoonste.

    Ge hebt de Muur, een monumentale berg kasseien, veel volk. Ge hebt de Berendries, veel volk. Maar de Paterberg is de schoonste.

    Weet ge wat Rosten, probeer het nog een keer . . .
    op ne stille, zachte weekdag, te voet eerst, en dan met uwe fiets, de Paterberg op. Ge voelt de kasseien, ge proeft de helling, ge snuift de graskant. De wind uit het westen streelt u. Ge wordt er stil van.

    En als ge boven zijt, keert u om, ge gaat de hemel voelen. De lucht is zacht, trilt. Hij is ijler dan beneden.

    Als ge wilt vliegen, Rosten, ga naar daar.
    Naar de Paterberg. 't Is de schoonste.

    (from 'De Ronde van Vlaanderen' van theater Krakeel 1998)

    It is not really possible to translate this poem completely. But it describes the beauty of the Paterberg and it describes the feeling when you are climbing it and also the happy feeling once you have reached the top.
