Artist's Description

In memoriam.
This photo was taken on their wedding day:
4 October 1941. So many, many years ago. (South Africa)
I’ll always remember them. I’ll always think of them with love and respect.

This photo was taken on their 50th wedding anniversary.(1991)
They were married for 54 years.

AFRIKAANSE gedigte:
Ma.
Sy het voëltjiename vir haar kleinkinders gegee:
Maureen ‘n swaweltjie,
Marethe ‘n tortelduif
Wilhelm ‘n korhaan
en Liesl ‘n fisantjie

(en so het haar liefde vir taal en die natuur
ook in my hart en verstand kom nesskrop
om altyd daar te bly)
is dit hoekom elke môre vir my mooi is
hier langs die groot karee
waar geelvink se nes aan die dunste takkie hang
en ek met vrede en blydskap
na my Ma mag verlang
as ek my oggendkoffie drink
en my beker vól van
God se goedheid skink

En een vir my Pa:
Pa
Tussen gister se swart-en-wit kiekies
het ek vir Pa opgetel en hom
op my oop handpalms laat lê
daar was so baie wat ek graag
nog vir hom wou sê:
van vreugdes wat sommer onverwags
oor my hart kom spoel
en my so bly soos ’n kleuterkind
laat voel en ek kon hoor
hoedat hy lag oor elke nuwe
jubeldag wat kom
vir my en hom
ek het lank so sit en staar:
hoe handsome het hy tog gelyk
daar waar hy met sy dubbelborspak
teen Melville se klipkoppies
met sy hart in sy oë
oor die vlaktes heen kyk
sy hande groot en bruin en sterk,
daai hande het vir ons gewerk
en nou, nou groei ’n denneboom
mos aan sy graf se soom
en hoor ek sag die duiwe koer
hier op my hart se vloer
