PUISI LAGU OMBAK
Karya : Kahlil Gibran

Pantai yang perkasa adalah kekasihku,
Dan aku adalah kekasihnya,
Akhirnya kami dipertautkan oleh cinta,
Namun kemudian Bulan menjarakkan aku darinya.
Kupergi padanya dengan cepat
Lalu berpisah dengan berat hati.
Membisikkan selamat tinggal berulang kali.

Aku segera bergerak diam-diam
Dari balik kebiruan cakerawala
Untuk mengayunkan sinar keperakan buihku
Ke pangkuan keemasan pasirnya
Dan kami berpadu dalam adunan terindah.

Aku lepaskan kehausannya
Dan nafasku memenuhi segenap relung hatinya
Dia melembutkankan suaraku dan mereda gelora di dada.
Kala fajar tiba, kuucapkan prinsip cinta
di telinganya, dan dia memelukku penuh damba

Di terik siang kunyanyikan dia lagu harapan
Diiringi kucupan-kucupan kasih sayang
Gerakku pantas diwarnai kebimbangan
Sedangkan dia tetap sabar dan tenang.
Dadanya yang bidang meneduhkan kegelisahan

Kala air pasang kami saling memeluk
Kala surut aku berlutut menjamah kakinya
Memanjatkan doa

Seribu sayang, aku selalu berjaga sendiri
Menyusut kekuatanku.
Tetapi aku pemuja cinta,
Dan kebenaran cinta itu sendiri perkasa,
Mungkin kelelahan akan menimpaku,
Namun tiada aku bakal binasa.

Kahlil Gibran

SONG OF THE WAVES
By: Khalil Gibran

The strong shore is my beloved
And I am his sweetheart.
We are at last united by love, and
Then the moon draws me from him.
I go to him in haste and depart
Reluctantly, with many
Little farewells.

I steal swiftly from behind the
Blue horizon to cast the silver of
My foam upon the gold of his sand, and
We blend in melted brilliance.

I quench his thirst and submerge his
Heart; he softens my voice and subdues
My temper.
At dawn I recite the rules of love upon
His ears, and he embraces me longingly.

At eventide I sing to him the song of
Hope, and then print smooth hisses upon
His face; I am swift and fearful, but he
Is quiet, patient, and thoughtful. His
Broad bosom soothes my restlessness.

As the tide comes we caress each other,
When it withdraws, I drop to his feet in
Prayer.

Many times have I danced around mermaids
As they rose from the depths and rested
Upon my crest to watch the stars;
Many times have I heard lovers complain
Of their smallness, and I helped them to sigh.

Many times have I teased the great rocks
And fondled them with a smile, but never
Have I received laughter from them;
Many times have I lifted drowning souls
And carried them tenderly to my beloved
Shore. He gives them strength as he
Takes mine.

Many times have I stolen gems from the
Depths and presented them to my beloved
Shore. He takes them in silence, but still
I give fro he welcomes me ever.

In the heaviness of night, when all
Creatures seek the ghost of Slumber, I
Sit up, singing at one time and sighing
At another. I am awake always.

Alas! Sleeplessness has weakened me!
But I am a lover, and the truth of love
Is strong.
I may be weary, but I shall never die.
