Hakkelbessie Herfs

Hakkelbessie Herfs

Hakkelbessies fluister op die tak,
stormwater oor vlak grond;
onder glipper die
blouhaai bont.

Hakkelfin is ‘n skerp kalant;
sy humor vang jou straks onkant.
Intussen dobber die skeentjievente
flink en vars in waterskuimtente.
Nou kom die winter
en dan, die lente.

Vrekmooi Fall

IMG_6284.JPG

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock,
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin’ turkey-cock,
And the clackin’ of the guineys, and the cluckin’ of the hens,
And the rooster’s hallylooyer as he tiptoes on the fence;
O, it’s then’s the times a feller is a-feelin’ at his best,
With the risin’ sun to greet him from a night of peaceful rest,
As he leaves the house, bareheaded, and goes out to feed the stock,
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock.

(Via Poetry Foundation, James Whitcomb Riley.)
