Syair Jawa-Inggris: Amba’s Song – Sujiwo Tejo

Karya: Sujiwo Tejo

AMBA’S SONG
Karya: Sujiwo Tejo

erepen lingsir wengi
pundi sangkan parane
kalingan gunung-gunung
nanging nladung talingan

kaprungu ukarane
sajak sworo wong wadon
wanodya kang tundone
jebul mung nemu sio

lelo ledung kesandung sandung
sinandung mego-mego
lelo ledung pedut ambarung
anglimputi sasongko

rerepen lingsir wengi
kaling-kalingan mego
wanodya kan tundone
ijen ing swargo tundo

a soliloquy past midnight
of unknown origin
muffled by the mountains
but still pounding into me

a string of words
like a woman’s moan
a woman who in the end
is left with nothing

lelo ledung, stumbling
stumbling over clouds
lelo ledung, the fog enfolds
obscuring the pale moon

a soliloquy past midnight
muffled by the clouds
from a woman who at the end
is solitary in heaven

Song, lyric, vocal: Sujiwo Tejo
Music: Sekar Melati
Album: Mirah Ingsun (2012)
