Bert Bevers gedicht: Retour

Retour

De klokken roepen als vanouds maar er zijn minder oren.
Verduiveld goed nog weet hij hoe de superplie over het
schoon geschoren jongenshalsje schoof. In kalm ritme

vol geloof ging de dag in deze Heilig Hartkerk van start
als alle dagen. Naast de sacristie vertoeft zijn vingerafdruk
nog ergens op de knoppen voor het galmen. Medeplichtig.

Die jonge jaren raken meer en meer beduimeld,
maar tuimelen soms de draad van geheugen even
wichtig op. Dan proeft hij. Hoe vroeger een huis

waar hij nog wel eens langs kuierde thuis was,
langgeleden inzicht met hete huiver stolt
als ei in kokend water. Geen angst voor later.
