Agnita Feis: Het land is stom (gedicht)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is AgnitaFeis-03.jpeg

Het land is stom

Geen kleur.
Geen klank.
Het land
is stom.

Slechts oog
en oor
voor zwaard
en trom.

O mensch
verhef
uw stem
dan toch!

Gil, krijsch,
huil, brul!
‘t Is tijd,
nu nog.

Maar straks
niet meer……….
Het vuur
brandt voort.

‘t Verteert.
‘t Verkoolt……….
‘t Blijft stil.
Geen woord.

Geen kleur.
Geen klank:
Het land
is stom.

Slechts oog
en oor
voor zwaard
en trom.

Agnita Feis
(1881 – 1944)
Uit: Oorlog. Verzen in Staccato (1916).
Het land is stom
