I wrote the "The Walk: Zevenbergschen-Hoek, Netherlands" forty years ago based on an experience I had as student on a homestay in Netherlands. I spent a week with a family in a small village, shared a room with their daughters who were teenagers as well. I revisited this poem in 2016, edited it a bit, but used my maiden name on it to acknowledge that it was written by my earlier self. The Voices Project published it in May of 2016.
