The swallows are flocking on the vlei
they know its nearly time to leave
there's a nervous excitement about them
whose suitcases are almost packed.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
I wrote this after taking a walk to Zandvlei and seeing a large flock of swallows gathering to migrate back to Europe.A vlei for those who don't know is a lake.
