Who We Are

THe Partisans’ Song In AFRIKAANS
Translated by Daniella Van Niekerk
STELLENBOSCH UNIVERSITY, SOUTH AFRICA 

 

Moet nooit sêdaar wag net dood vir jou nie,

alhoewel loodswaar hemele die blou lug mag versteek,

want die uur waarna ons gehunker het, is naby;

die aarde sal bewe onder ons tree – ons is hier!

 

Van die land van palmbome, tot die vêrre land van sneeu,

sal ons kom met ons pyniging en geween,

en oral waar ons bloed in die aarde ingesyfer het,

sal ons dapperheid, ons krag, uitbloei!

 

Ons sal die môreson hê om ons dag te laat gloei,

en al ons gisters sal verdwyn saam met ons vyande.

En indien dit nog lank is voor die son weer verskyn,

laat hierdie lied soos ‘n sein voortklink deur die jare.

 

Hierdie lied is geskryf in bloed, nie lood nie.

Dit is nie ‘n lied wat somervoëls oorhoofs sing nie.

Dit was ‘n volk ter midde van brandende versperrings,

wat die lied van ons gesing het met pistole en grenate.

 

Moet nooit sêdaar wag net dood vir jou nie,

alhoewel loodswaar hemele die blou lug mag versteek,

want die uur waarna ons gehunker het, is naby;

die aarde sal bewe onder ons tree – ons is hier!

Sea Point (Boys’) High 50 years on

50 years since we matriculated in 1969, classmates Dimitri Coutras, Ian Stein and I met last Thursday, 7 March 2019, at Sea Point High School (Sea Point Boys’ High in our time).

We started our tour at 11:30am and met the principal, Ms  L Lebreton, librarian, Sharnette Gordon and Marlene Botha

Basie still dominates!

Straight to the principal, L Le Breton’s office.

A walk around the quad and corridors, and outdoors

Six years ago I met with Phillip Levy and Rodney Goldberg in Sydney. Here is that post:
