Ingrid Jonker - Ek herhaal jou sonder begin of einde herhaal ek jou liggaam Die dag het 'n smal skadu en die nag geel kruise die landskap is sonder aanzien en die mense 'n ry kerse terwyl ek jou herhaal met my borste wat die holtes van jou hande namaak.
The child who was shot dead by soldiers and the tragic life of Ingrid Jonker
In the early hours of the morning of 19 July 1965 a lovely young woman walked into the sea at Three Anchor Bay, Cape Town, and drowned. Her lifeless body was found by the police in about three feet of water at about 7.30 that morning. And so ended the life of one of South Africa's most promising young writers, a poet of great power and originality, a voice of honesty and openness, a person with a great love of life and the life of words.
