Sekembalinya Engkau Dari Utara


Mari kita binasa di utara hutan Sumatra
Sebagai perayaan cinta seribu patah hari
Sekembalinya engkau bermigrasi melewati
Cina Selatan yang sunyi
Kecupan di pundak kian meradang dibelai-belai angin laut
Dan katamu demikianlah esa buah tangan

Aku tertawa membahak selepas kau bercerita
Waktu berdua-duamu dengan pria dari utara
Jangkung, putih, berhidung bangir
Wahai, alang kepalang jauhnya denganku
yang berpeluh pasir

Maka aku menawari tuak murni asal ranahku
Yang manis membius jua memabukkan
Mari kita bersulang di bawah rimbun dedaunan
Sampai fajar menggeledah seisi hutan

Ah, kau memang wanitaku yang paling jalang
Kendati begitu cintaku padamu mengalir
bak lahar Sinabung
Selepas wartamu meningkah fokus di mata
Maka lelap saja

Aku membelalak bukan galak
Melainkan surga di tangan
Mahar kawinku di hadapan Tuhan
Maka lekas bersolek
Kita berpesta di awang-awang

After You Return From North

Let us perish in the north of Sumatran forest
As the love celebration of a thousand broken days
Upon your returnal, migrating through
the quiet South China
A kiss on the shoulder inflamed, caressed by sea breeze
And you say, this is a souvenir

I loudly laugh after you tell me about
your time together with a man from the north
Tall, white, with sharp nose
O, how absurdly different from me that covered with sandy sweat

So I offer an origin booze from my land
Enchanting sweet and stupefying
Let’s toast under the lush foliages
Till dawn rummages the forest

O, you are my damned woman
Nevertheless, my love for you is overflowing like the lava of Sinabung
After the news ’bout you beats out the focus of my eyes
Then let us go to sleep

My eyes are open wider, doesn’t mean that I am fierce
But because paradise is clasped in my hand
My bridewealth before God
So preen already
Let’s hold the party upon the clouds
