1 Work in De Bleeke Jongeling - Piet Paaltjens
Translation of the Dutch poem "De Bleeke Jongeling" by the 19th century poet Piet Paaltjens (François Haverschmidt).
This is proper dark romantic poetry, something the Dutch do not excell in at all. Which is why this poem is special to me.
It features a broken-hearted youth grieving amongst the splendure of nature.
