In a small street just outside the old city center of Utrecht, The Netherlands, this short inspiring poem recreates the feeling of wondering the streets on a warm spring day.
Poem by Virginie Driesen:
in de zon
en vanuit een open raam
in the sunshine
and from an open window
your favourite music
In 2001 a collective of female literature admirers (Zijschrift) got the idea of painting poems on Utrechts walls. Their wish was granted on two projects by the local government. Problems occured when the neighbours, who were not informed, saw their new living environment. This resulted in several formal complaints, but the poetry survived.
