On November 1, village and Route 42 poet Gaby Desmyter wrote four “Cemetery Poems”. These poems were given a permanent place on the walls of the four Lierd cemeteries.
The inauguration of these poems took place on Friday 28/10/2022, after the opening of the exhibition in the WZC Kartuizerhof, at the cemetery of Sint Martens Lierde by Mayor Jurgen Soetens and Alderman of Culture Katelijne Scheirlinckx.
Gaby Desmyter gave the necessary explanation of the background photo he made and then played the poem that hangs on this wall.
Both the photos and the poems are worth looking at and reading and we would therefore advise anyone who visits the cemeteries on November 1 to take a moment to reflect on these “Cemetery Poems”.
