Bert Bevers: Wachten op de perenval. Een boerengedicht

 

Wachten op de perenval

Een boerengedicht

Tussen verse klaver en bloeiende netel
roestige val: de dreiging blijft. Aan de voetzolen
poldermodder, smeuïg en zwart.

Uit langse karren bulken ajuinen. Erachter houden
wielrenners zich uit de wind. Boeren klotsen klompen
over de deel. Er zit regen in de lucht.

Bezwangerd land. Fazanten schieten door de greppels.
Hoera: gloeit achter gindse wolk de zon niet weer?
Harken krabben van de tuin de jeuk weg.

Hé Adriaen van Grijpstraten, waar heb je toch mijn
zwingel gelaten? neuriet de knecht. Vergeten is
de landheer die hier dertig jaar geleden op de rozen piste

nog niet gans.

Bert Bevers
