Flower
(Rabindranath Tagore)

Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not! I fear lest it

Droop and drop into the dust.

I may not find a place in thy garland, but honour it with a touch of

pain from thy hand and pluck it. I fear lest the day end before I am

aware, and the time of offering go by.

Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower

in thy service and pluck it while there is time.

Bunga
(oleh Djodi Lembayung)

Petik bunga kecil ini, janganlah tunda! Aku kuatir kalau ia

layu dan jatuh menjadi sampah.

Mungkin tak kutemukan tempat selayaknya kalung, tetapi muliakan

Ia dengan sentuhan lukanya tangan dan petiklah. Aku cemas siang ini

berakhir tanpa disadari dan waktu pun berlalu.

Walau tak indah warnanya dan tak harum baunya, kenakanlah

bunga di mana saja dan petiklah bila ada waktu.
