Closed Path
(Rabindranath Tagore)

I thought that my voyage had come to its end at the last limit of my

power,—that the path before me was closed, that provisions were

exhausted and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.

But I find that thy will knows no end in me.

And when old words die out on the tongue, new melodies break forth from

the heart; and where the old tracks are lost, new country is revealed with

its wonders.

Jalan Buntu
(oleh Desson Ariawan)

Kutahu perjalananku sudah hampir berakhir seiring habisnya sisa

kekuatanku, jalan yang telah kulalui telah tertutup, bekalku sudah habis

dan sang waktupun merayap tiba dalam kekelaman

Tetapi kuyakin Engkau mengetahui akhir perjalananku Bilamana kata-kata di

lidah telah kelu, nyanyian baru akan menerjang dari dalam hati; Dan

bilamana jalan yang lama telah hilang, negeri baru akan muncul dengan

segala keindahannya.

(Catatan: banyak improvisasi)
