Bert’s in a hurry!
He has a lot to do
He’s off to Keukenhof Garden
Where there’s many flowers to view

Over 7 million flower bulbs
Are planted annually
That’s a lot of work
To be done manually!

Covering 79 acres
It’s no wonder people say
It’s the Garden of Europe
And deserves the name in every way

There’s many gorgeous flowers
Of every shape & size
It’s amazing to behold
And a treat for your eyes

There are so many incredible flowers here!

There are so many incredible flowers here!

Beautiful Tulips!

Bert loves the tulips!

Bert wants to keep looking
But he’s planned a canal cruise!
He’d better get moving
There’s no time to lose!

Bert hops on a boat
Then sees they’ve supplied
Some nifty headphones
For the audio guide

Canal cruises are popular
And generate satisfaction
They are Holland’s largest
Tourist attraction

With 170 boats
And 3 million visitors each year
It’s the best way to see the city
That much is clear

As Bert floats along
He sees so many things
Like the Sofitel Legend’s The Grand
A hotel fit for Queens & Kings!

Bert wishes he could stay there!

Bert wishes he could stay there!

As the boat pulls to port
Bert exits with a smile
He had so much fun
Cruising the canals in style

It’s now time for Bert
To head home for the night
He’s seen so much today
It was a pure delight!

Bert loves Canal Cruises!
