Jan Jacob Antonie Goeverneur (1809–1889)

Goeverneur, Jan Jacob Antonie (gö-ver-nėr’). A Dutch poet; born in Hoevelaken, Feb. 14, 1809; died at Gröningen, March 19, 1889. His poems in serious vein appeared over the pseudonym of “Jan de Rijmer” (yän dė rīmer); but they are not so meritorious as his verses for children, which the little people of the Netherlands know by heart.
