I am going to write my thoughts, the bits and bobs that I remember of how it was for me, during my almost fifty years spent in South Africa.
Yesterday, Yellow Cape Cobra, Yellow-billed Oxpecker, Yellow crowned Bishop, Yellow- bellied Bulbul, Yellow-throated Sand grouse, York, Yellow-billed Kite
Yes you are right! If it wasn’t for the word Yellow; there would be no entry for “Y” in memories of South Africa this time!
There is YOU, as me, in South Africa!
And there was yesterday
So long ago when I was young
An innocent youth
(And the Yellow-billed Oxpecker….)
The yuletide fire a family held
So close together
(So too the Yellow- Crowned Bishop….)
Wonderful union, loving too
(Maybe the Yellow-throated Sand Grouse too…)
Kids spreading youthful wings
Once more, they fly
(As did the Yellow-billed Kite….)
Reflection time on yesterday
In a tiny town called York
27 k from Albert falls Dam
Surely a B&B here?
(No, not York in …..shire, or even New…….; but York as in Kwazulu- Natal)
