The poem below was written by one of our guests as an ode to the sculpture “Waiting for High Water” and published on the website of Losser (Overijssel).

The bronze giantess on the dike can be clearly seen from Holiday home Smoek
Impressive, motionless, waking and waiting for high tide

All other concerns are for later
And the farmer? He ploughs on

With the many birds searching for food in his trail
Thunder, lightning, hail and rain

Nothing can stop this strong woman
Soon she’ll get support from another generation

And maybe she’ll lose her adoration
The day before yesterday I had hand contact with her

It didn’t feel weird at all.
As a good family member, I keep an eye on her

This woman will never leave us
Holwerd, you’re in good hands

Now let the other woman land
