I write what I feel…


Memories, Mementoes & Mosbolletjies

Memories and mementoes

Taped up in boxes

Enclosed in cases

Tied up with string

Which to hold on to

And which to let go

Even the sweetest

Leaves a nasty trace

Leaves a bitter taste

No room for the sad

No place for the bad

Let me savour

But the purest flavour

Bake mosbolletjies*

For the future


*South Africa: a sweetish bun,
eaten fresh or dried as a rusk, often flavoured with aniseed
