Ngwenya –  A Poem

Ngwenya – A Poem

Families and friends, young and old equally relish the moment they arrive at their home-away-from-home and can step into this space of splendour. Ngwenya is one of a kind and for this reason holidaymakers lose their hearts here. Joyce Joubert, an Ngwenya Lodge shareholder recently shared ‘Ngwenya – A Poem’ with our Team. Joyce and her family have been making holiday memories at Ngwenya for 18 years and the family first purchased a slice of this paradise back in 2015.

Op Ngwenya Lodge will ek graag bly (At Ngwenya Lodge I would like to stay)
Want dis hier waar ek vrede kry (Because it brings me peace)
Om die Here te dien (To serve the Lord)
En die natuur te sien (And to experience nature)
Bring ‘n rustigheid in my (Offers tranquillity to my soul)

Saam met die vloei van die rivier (With the flow of the river)
Kom kalmte in my (Calm is washed over me)
En ek weet dis hier (And I realise it is here)
Waar ek net wil sit en tuur (Where I wish to sit and stare)

Voëlgesang van vroeg tot laat (Birdsong from dawn til dusk)
Dikkoppies wat in die skemer praat (Thick-Knees which call at twilight)
Vuurvliegies wat in die donker uitkom (Fireflies which light up the night)
Voltooi die totaal van hierdie som (Complete the sum)

Wat ‘n voorreg om te kan geniet (What a blessing to be able to enjoy)
Alles wat die natuur ons bied (All the offerings of nature)
Soos leeus wat brul, jakkalse wat huil (Such as lions that roar, jackals that whine)
Diep in die nag waar gevare skuil (Late at night when danger lurks)

Sonsondergange raak aan die hart (Sunset pulls the heartstrings)
Verdryf alle pyn en smart (Dissolves all pain and sorrow)

Dis waar ek wil bly (This is where I wish to stay)
En soek jy na my (And, should you be searching for me)
Is ek by Ngwenya (I will be at Ngwenya)
Dis waar jy my sal kry (That is where you will find me)

Thank you Joyce Joubert for this beautiful poem! We’re elated to have you as part of the greater Ngwenya Family and we look forward to making many more everlasting holiday memories together.
