Distinguished Visitors

by Elaine Edwards

have arrived in Melkbos.

Stalking around on spindly legs
they look down their aristocratic noses
at our local crowd.

Heads down they become
croquet hoops, turning the small vlei
into a liquid lawn.

Honourable guests
please stay awhile.

Continue to beguile us
with your pink and white presence.
