    I've just completed an English translation of Elisabeth Eybers' poem " Circe" of which Gert Strydom did such a good free translation, and would like to share my own version which you can read under submissions.

    I am trying to get in touch with Gert Strydom URGENTLY as I wish to include one of his poems (on Carnations) in a book - can anyone please help? Unless I can make contact soon the editor wants to remove it.

    Hello Gert... waardering vir jouse versameling dan. Maar soos die kind soldaat wat verwaarloos deur sy regering destyds is, verloen ons dan nie ook ons taal as daar so min van jousewerk in die moedertaal is?

Best Poem of Gert Strydom

Each One Of Us Is Unique

Each one of us is unique
and no person
is really the same,
but we copy others
and long for better and more
and try to be like others
who are successful and happy
and the example that we set
tells where our interests
really are.

There is one role model
that’s perfect
in every way
and with my eyes
set on Him,
I will not falter
when life’s biggest
challenges come.

[Reference: “For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.” John 13: 15.]

Read the full of Each One Of Us Is Unique

Fatherland

I am no longer
from you,
because you have
discarded me.

When I was a boy
you forced me,
to go to war.
