Tulips and windmills
Of canals and maple trees
Den Haag and Centrum

Wooden clogs and Delft
blue. Herring in onions
Fries, with or without?

Dining is bliss, hot
pizza, Indische rijsttafels
Chinese takeaways

Edam, cheese galore
One or in separate bills?
Astublieft and Dag.....

Written for Chev's haiku at CARPE DIEM #119 with prompt - windmills

  10. That stout old windmill
    Like a big-hipped peasant girl
    Works hard every day
