by Bernhard van Meurs (1835 - 1915)

Ouwe mans klacht
Language: Dutch (Nederlands) 
De locht is zoo griezig - och, was ze maor blauw 
  En waoren de velden maor gruun! 
De sneuw glanst as zulver - och, was 'et maor dauw
  En waoren de velden maor gruun! 
De wiend is zoo snarpend - och, woei ie maor lauw 
  En waoren de velden maor gruun! 
Mien haor is zoo gries en mien baord is zoo grauw, 
Mien leên zin zoo stram en mien hart klopt zoo flauw,
Was Mert maor veurbij, kwiem de lente maor gauw,
  Och, waoren de velden maor gruun!
