in the low countries, Delft tiles shine, cobalt sky, Where Hendricks rows his painted boat.

A girl with hair like dandelion fluff, He sees him getting trapped in the morning mist.

Its net, the dance of silver scales, Sunlight reflects on the canals.

A silent desire, deep and strong, Pulls Hendrick back to where he belongs.

One day, one flower, one tulip red, Love floats on the stream, unspoken. He picks it up with a trembling hand.

He runs towards the shore and stands up.

A girl gets a crimson token. A smile that breaks, a long-broken dam. Under the windmills, the giants slow.

The promise of love blossoms only where tulips grow.
