There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.
Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.
Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

The clip was downloaded 42 million times on the Zondag met Lubach facebook page and shared over half a million times. The DutchNews website crashed briefly on Tuesday because of the overwhelming interest in the video. In a reaction to the video’s plea to ‘make the Netherlands second’ a petition was started by an anonymous American saying: ‘The Netherlands has requested, within the scope of the new America first initiatives, to be simply: second. They don’t want us to forget about them. So the White House should give them a call. 2nd place is open, and they asked nicely before anyone else. We’ll make them great too. We can do it.’ 100,000 signatures are needed to elicit a response from the White House. So far the petition has been signed once.
