4. End of Melle Grietjepad

Our Sea-wall:
You lie like a strong band
Like a green festoon around the land
From east to west united
The fertile polder under the shelter
Guard you from high tide:
You keep the water outside it.

When Lambert, son of merchant captain Jan Lammert Wiersma, was 15 years old, he moved to Amsterdam with his family. He reached his ranks at high speed and sailed until his marriage in 1909. Then he came ashore and eventually became director of the pilotage.
In 1969 he returned to the island.
