Bulan Purnama (The Full Moon) – Kahlil Gibran

Karya: Kahlil Gibran

BULAN PURNAMA
Karya: Kahlil Gibran

Bulan purnama muncul dengan anggun di atas kota. Semua anjing di kota itu melolong memanggil bulan. Hanya seekor yang tidak menggonggong. Ia berkata pada yang lain, “Jangan kau bangunkan rembulan dari tidurnya yang hening, dan jangan paksa bulan ke bumi dengan gonggonganmu.”

Kemudian semua anjing berhenti menggonggong. Namun anjing yang berbicara pada mereka malah menggonggong untuk mengusir kesunyian selama sisa malam itu.

THE FULL MOON
By: Kahlil Gibran

The full moon rose in glory upon the town, and all the dogs of that town began to bark at the moon.

Only one dog did not bark, and he said to them in a grave voice, “Awake not stillness from her sleep, nor bring you the moon to the earth with your barking.”

Then all the dogs ceased barking, in awful silence. But the dog who had spoken to them continued barking for silence, the rest of the night.
