LEOPARD’S LEAP WINE INSPIRES POETS

LEOPARD’S LEAP WINE INSPIRES POETS

Despite the unseasonal cold weather in the Cape, the potential to win a case of Leopard’s Leap wine inspired some of the Write Co.’s members to get lyrical about tulips and tattoos. Congratulations to Jill Marais who was last month’s winner.

Tulips and Tattoos by Jill Marais (editted version)

Grandpa said
Harry’d started off well,
but one visit to Amsterdam
and his life went to hell.
Grandpa said canals and tulips
were all very nice,
but the streets of the city
weren’t sugar and spice.

Harry, the hippy,
of sixty-four years,
was the singalong king
who reduced one to tears.
When he sang of tulips
in a down-and-out bar,
One could see,
from afar,
Hannah, in springtime,
with love in her heart.
Hovering above her,
a love laden dart.
