Anyaman Duka

Anyaman duka
Berselirat di hati
Deritanya luka
Bagi yang menanti

Berselirat di hati
Kata kata pedih
Bagi yang menanti
Terus bersedih

Kata kata pedih
Bak pisau beracun
Terus bersedih
Tiada penghujung...

The hurt

The hurt unfolds
Deep within the heart
For those due to part...

Jauhari Mengenal Manikam

Jauhari mengenal manikam
Bersinar di atas baldu
Kaca memancar lagi menikam
Menyusuk hati palsu

Jauhari tidak tertipu...

The Diamond

The diamond bedazzles
Upon dark velvet
Yet the shining crystals
Hoaxed all wallets

But not the king's jeweler...

Le Diamant

Le diamant brille
Sur de velours sombre
Pourtant, les cristaux aussi
Berné tout le monde

Mais ce n'est pas le roi bijoutier ...

Though almost a direct translation from the Malay version, the French and English poems are straightforward as read. The Malay pantun however has a second tiered meaning, subtle as it is which is totally different - a metaphor as it were.
