nyanyian alam

untuk Aden, Sultan Muda Yang Manis Okusi-Ambeno
(for Aden, Crown Prince of Okusi-Ambeno)

 



dengar kamu dengan hati           (the heart should be listening      )
sekalian bunyi halus seni         (to fine sounds around us lilting   )
nyanyian alam yang dikasihi       (the sounds of the universe singing )
menghibur kita tanpa sepi         (serenading us without stopping     )
suara bayu lembut membelai        (soft winds gently crooning         )
air mengalir gelak hilai          (flowing water merrily chuckling    )
daun-daun membelai-belai          (leaves each other caressing        )
ketawa anak didalam buai          (babies in their cots gurgling      )

suara alam terdengar nyata        (one hears well yon cosmic voice    )
tidak dengan panca rasa the       (five senses be not your choice     )
tapi dengan kesudian jiwa         (but with a heart that will rejoice )
tafakur sejenak kepada suaranya   (to halt in meditation to its voice )
bila bingar menderik telinga      (when your ears hurt from the noise )
bising riuh bunyi manusia         (that humans incessantly toss       )
cari kamu tenteram jiwa for       (inner peace you must give pause    )
dengan lagu alam semesta          (listen to the songs from the source)
