buying Poems or Prints and knowing of Princes

Isn't it strange how princes and kings,
and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
and common people, like you and me,
are builders for eternity?

Each is given a list of rules;
a shapeless mass; a bag of tools.
And each must fashion, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block, or a Stepping-Stone.

A bag of tools by: R.L. Sharpe (1870-1950)

On 30 November 2013, the start of the celebrations for 200 years of the Kingdom of the Netherlands will kick off with a reconstruction of the landing of Prince Willem Frederik at Scheveningen.

On this day precisely 200 years ago Willem Frederik, Prince of Orange-Nassau, later King Willem I, landed at Scheveningen beach after sailing from England, where his father, Prince William V, Prince of Orange-Nassau, had fled to in 1795 to escape the French. Now, 200 years later, a re-enactment of that historic landing will be broadcast live on television.
The bicentenary celebrations will be officially launched at the Ridderzaal in The Hague in the afternoon. The programme will include the presentation of a commemorative book and the premier performance of a piece of music specially composed for the occasion.
In the evening, there will be a party at the Circustheater, with performances by artists from all over the Kingdom and the Koninkrijksconcert / Kingdom Concert.
