Poetry, picture and art contest continues

Snow fell in much of the Netherlands in the past week, creating a very different feeling to nature than what we all had during the first lockdown. We received our first contribution from a student, Aleksandra Kaleta, year 1, BA Digital Society. Click through to read her poem.

Maybe Carnival will inspire more students and staff to express their reactions to the continued lockdown in poetry, prose or art. Send your contributions to sally.wyatt@maastrichtuniversity.nl.

Aleksandra Kaleta


A plague-stricken diaspora
They left in spring
In spring theyโ€™ll stay
Locked up in the prison of March

Their galaxy floats far away
A realm outside of time and space

Exiles of two thousand twenty
Gaze up to their small snow-white skies
And mourn the time forever lost
