Hansie en Grietjie - Eveleen Castelyn?Daar was eendag 'n woud
aan die kant van die son,
die maan is 'n flou olielamp
saans brand honderde kersies,
die volgende more word die kindertjies
afgelaai by die heks se huisie
na-vyf, na-werk kom die
stiefmammies en - pappies hulle haal
met 'n ysterswaan
die nuutste model blaas rook
en jaag oor riviere teer
tot by kelders parkering
dan word hulle opgehys
gebad en gevoer in 'n hok
moet hulle soet gaan slaap
eendag het hansie en grietjie
weggeloop, bo-oor die tralies geklim
en fyn en flenters geval
op die paadjies sement
ver van die huis af DIRECT TRANSLATION

Once upon a time there was a wood
on the other side of the sun
the moon is a faint oil lamp
hundreds of small candles burn at night
the next morning the children are taken
and left at the small house of the witch
after five after work comes
the stepmommies and daddies to pick them up
with an iron swan
the newest model blows smoke
and chases over rivers tenderly
to cellars/ waiters parking
and then they are hoisted up
given a bath fed while in a cage
they have to go to sleep quietly
one day Hansel and Grethel
ran away over the gate they climbed
and fell and broke into pieces
on the sidewalk cement
far away from home

Hope this helps but it's an Afrikaans poem for a reason and will lose it's meaning when translated. All of the words mean so much and can strike up so many other feelings in so many other people. And by the way...this poem is in Afrikaans. Why do you need it translated into the same language it's in?
