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
