Ton van Reen gedicht: zwarte waakvogels

Ton van Reen

zwarte waakvogels

 

Zwaluwen in zwarte vechterspakken

schieten als speren door de lucht

drijvend op hun vleugels

houden ze de akkers in het oog

moedig als mannen waken ze over de oogst

 

Afgeschoten als pijlen

scheren ze over de bomen

en duiken laag over de paden

hun scherpe vleugels

snijden de toppen van de daken

 

Vertrouwd met het dorp

bouwen ze hun harde nesten

onder de dakranden van de hutten

waar ze samenhokken

met de zielen van de voorouders

 

Uit: Ton van Reen, Blijvend vers, Verzamelde gedichten (1965-2007).

Uitgeverij De Contrabas, 2011, ISBN 9789079432462, 144 pagina’s, paperback
