Intertwined green grass
decorated its surrounding.
Blooming flowers smiling
at the uninvited guest.

Fruit trees bearing their first harvest
Crops ready to ripen
Lives revived
by what it has to consume

Tummies grumble as the
cook stirs delicious soup
Faces brighten as stories
are told while roasting mealies

Laughter stolen
Loved ones gone
Left desolate and deserted
Dilapidated you are
once-loved rondavel
