Best be warned, I’m going to rhyme again. I’m not that good at it, but I don’t care. One must amuse oneself with something, right?
I’ve visited Ostend only twice
and to me this city is so awfully nice
Where Marvin Gaye wrote Sexual Healing
this coastal city has a particular feeling
for many it’s just a beach and a place for shoppin’
but for Permeke and Ensor ‘t was their home to paint in
noteworthy museums, where you can explore
works by the COBRA movement, of Belgium post war
the Peperbusse is all that today can be found
of the church – now replaced – that burned to the ground
museums, the pier promenade, casino and more
the Mercator marina, what can you wish more?
my weekend in Ostend was too short, that I’m sure
I’ll surely be back, for a day or even more
