Tempayan pecah


Tempayan pecah

Tempayan pecah di legar taman
Di tengah panas, di siram hujan
Ancaman dunia, wahai teman
Bertambah kancah, bertambah bentan

Di tengah panas, disiram hujan
Sudah bersepai zaman berzaman
Bertambah kancah, bertambah bentan
Hingga di belai jiwa budiman

Sudah bersepai zaman berzaman
Marilah tampal dan betulkan
Biar dibelai jiwa budiman
Sebelum terlambat, jangan biarkan

Retak seribu jangan biarkan...

World Lie Broken

Lie broken in the garden
A terraccota pot of elements
Like the many world problems
Incessant waves of disagreements

A terracota pot of elements
Made whole with glue and sand
Incessant waves of disagreements
You and I can put to an end

Made whole with glue and sand
Beautiful and useful once again
You and I can put to an end
If we put together our hearts, our hands

Do not let all turn to grainy sand...

Un pot de terre

Fait tout avec du sable et de la colle
Un pot de terre cuite beau à nouveau
Nous pouvons arrêter tous les problèmes
Si nous mettons tout notre cœur, nos mains

Ne le laissez pas trop tard, mon cher
Regardez et voyez la vérité

Today I repaired my old terracota pot, and this inspired this pantun berkait, also known as pantoum

Lovely, ninotaziz.

"A terracota pot of elements
Made whole with glue and sand
Incessant waves of disagreements
You and I can put to an end..."

Very good stanza, full of imagery and life.
