Musieksterre wat van ver skyn

In “Plaasstories” skryf ek, Dantjie, oor musieksterre wat van ver skyn: John Denver en Neil Diamond. Boet het hulle hier aangebring van oorsee op sy langspeelplate. John Denver se woorde moes bly soos hulle is, maar maar van die diamantsanger se woorde moes ek verander om by my storie te pas.

 

He left a statued pile of tales and pride …

 

 

And the stories were shaped with his dreams

 

topped with beautiful true ordeals and funny schemes

 

and all children who gathered ’round this life-fountain

 

and touched it with their laughter, found it was good …

 

those words became his epitaph

 

for his children
