¶ Johan Willem Frederik Werumeus Buning (Velp, 1891 - Amsterdam, 1958) was a Dutch poet and writer.
Werumeus Buning studied to be a notary public, but quit to become arts editor of De Telegraaf newspaper. Encouraged by his friend Adriaan Roland Holst, he started writing poetry. In 1921 his first poetry collection appeared. His greatest success was ‘Mária Lécina’ (1932), which was parodied as ‘Dieuwertje Diekema’ by Kees Stip during the Second World War, followed by ‘Drie ballades’ (1935), of which the ‘Ballade van den boer’ is the best known (“Maar de boer, hij ploegde voort...”). Werumeus Buning was also an inspired and knowledgeable writer on culinary matters, as in his ‘100 avonturen met een pollepel’ (1937).
During the war, Werumeus Buning joined the Nederlandsche Kultuurkamer, which resulted in a one-year publication ban after the war. As a result, he became less popular. After the liberation, he was not only a poet, but also an editor of Elseviers Weekblad and a translator of Shakespeare, Cervantes and Herman Melville, among others.
