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
