KEDAMAIAN YANG MENULAR
Karya: Kahlil Gibran

Sebuah cabang pohon berkata pada cabang pohon yang lain, “Ini adalah hari paling sepi dan membosankan.”

Cabang yang satunya berkata, “Benar, ini adalah hari yang sepi dan membosankan.”

Pada saat itu, seekor burung pipit hinggap di salah satu cabang pohon tersebut, dan pipit lain mendekat. Salah satu pipit berkata, “Pasanganku telah meninggalkanku, dan ia takkan pernah kembali. Tapi, peduli amat.”

Kedua burung itu akhirnya bertengger hingga menimbulkan suara berisik. Tiba-tiba dua ekor pipit lain terbang dari awan dan hinggap dengan tenang di atas cabang pohon. Saat itu semuanya menjadi tenang dan penuh kedamaian.

Lalu keempatnya terbang berpasangan.

Dan cabang pertama berkata pada cabang yang satunya, “Itu merupakan perubahan suasana yang menakjubkan.”

Dan cabang yang lain menjawab, “Katakan apa pun yang kau suka, sekarang semuanya penuh dengan kedamaian. Dan jika udara di atas damai, maka yang berada di bawah pun akan merasa damai. Mengapa kau tidak mendekat ke arahku?

Cabang pertama berkata, “Oh, kebetulan, demi kedamaian, musim semi telah datang.”

Lalu cabang pertama menggerakkan dirinya dibantu angin kencang untuk mendekati temannya.

PEACE CONTAGIOUS
By: Kahlil Gibran

One branch in bloom said to his neighbouring branch, “This is a dull and empty day.” And the other branch answered, “It is indeed empty and dull.”

At that moment a sparrow alighted on one of the branches, and the another sparrow, nearby.

And one of the sparrows chirped and said, “My mate has left me.”

And the other sparrow cried, “My mate has also gone, and she will not return. And what care I?”

Then the two birds began to twitter and scold, and soon they were fighting and making harsh noise upon the air.

All of a sudden two other sparrows came sailing from the sky, and they sat quietly beside the restless two. And there was calm, and there was peace.

Then the four flew away together in pairs.

And the first branch said to his neighbouring branch, “That was a mighty zig-zag of sound.”

And the other branch answered, “Call it what you will, it is now both peaceful and spacious. And if the upper air makes peace it seems to me that those who dwell in the lower might make peace also. Will you not wave in the wind a little nearer to me?”

And the first branch said, “Oh, perchance, for peace’ sake, ere the Spring is over.”

And then he waved himself with the strong wind to embrace her.
