‘Yet I cried’ (Koos Duivesteijn-Ockeloen, pilgrim 1583)


Koos Duivesteijn-Ockeloen walked the Walk of Wisdom and route map 4 (dots 5 and 11) in mid-August, inspired him to write the following text:


At Persingen, I was Charon
Who ferried me across the river
I wanted my dead loved one back
I hoped to find him in the Elysian Fields of Ubbergen
Impossible, of course
Still, I shouted
George, are you here?
