Story Challenge W

While standing at the window and looking out at the now empty fields, a rhyme learned at school came to my mind. Then I realised:  THERE!  That is the story I want to tell for the W story challenge from frizztext.




Although the little poem refers to grain, we all know that wheat is generally used for bread.

(Maybe Frizz must verify my translation skills when it comes to the word Korn.)

Der Bauer baut mit Müh und Not
das Korn für unser täglich Brot.
Zum Müller wird das Korn gebracht
und feines Mehl daraus gemacht.
Der Bäcker nimmt das Mehl in Haus
und bäckt im Ofen Brot daraus.
Die Mutter streicht noch Butter drauf,
und wir? Wir essen alles auf.

Loosely translated it tells of all the labour the farmer, the miller, the baker and then the mother put in to provide a sandwich.

then we (the children) come and  just eat it.


still baking


the freshly baked bread

Yes, I baked the bread and just after that first slice was cut, my children smelled it and came down in a hurry to enjoy their share.

        Beslis, mens ruik dit meestal van ver af. My seun het een van hierdie outomatiese broodbakkers.(Ook maar nie dieselfde meer, geen knie en laat staan ens. Alles word nou outomaties gedoen) Gelukkig bly die reuk van brood wat bak dieselfde.

    perfect translation, I only missed one little “s”:
    Der Bäcker nimmt das Mehl
    ins Haus
    thank you very much!

      I could not remember the exact words of the poem so I got this somewhere from the internet. Yes, the “s” should be there

    learned in a German or Dutch school?

      we call our language Afrikaans that grew from the original Dutch our ancestors used to speak. I attended an Afrikaans school but had German as a school subject for a year of two

    it touches my heart –
    you write German,
    I try to write English …

      correction…….I also only try to write German.
      my knowledge of the German language is next to nothing in comparison to your English
