PAKAIAN
Karya: Kahlil Gibran

Suatu hari kecantikan dan keburukan bertemu di tepi laut. Dan mereka saling berkata, “Marilah berenang ke laut.”

Lalu mereka menanggalkan pakaian dan berenang. Setelah beberapa saat, keburukan kembali ke tepi dan mengenakan pakaian kecantikan kemudian pergi.

Dan saat kecantikan keluar dari laut, ia tidak menemukan pakaiannya. Karena malu untuk telanjang, akhirnya ia mengenakan pakaian keburukan.

Dan hingga akhir hari ini kita tidak mampu mengenali mereka satu per satu. Hanya ada beberapa orang yang mengenali kecantikan meskipun ia menggunakan pakaian keburukan. Dan ada juga yang dapat mengenali keburukan, karena pakaian yang ia kenakan tak mampu menyembunyikan wajah aslinya.

GARMENTS
By: Kahlil Gibran

Upon a day Beauty and Ugliness met on the shore of a sea. And they said to one another, “Let us bathe in the sea.”

Then they disrobed and swam in the waters. And after a while Ugliness came back to shore and garmented himself with the garments of Beauty and walked away.

And Beauty too came out of the sea, and found not her raiment, and she was too shy to be naked, therefore she dressed herself with the raiment of Ugliness. And Beauty walked her way.

And to this very day men and women mistake the one for the other.

Yet some there are who have beheld the face of Beauty, and they know her notwithstanding her garments. And some there be who know the face of Ugliness, and the cloth conceals him not from their eyes.
