Hahaha Pak Idrus,just for u ??.

,,,Lain padang lain belalang-lah !

..THE tide rises, the tide falls,
The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;
Along the sea-sands damp and brown
The traveller hastens toward the town
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

Darkness settles on the roofs and walls
But the sea, the sea in darkness calls;
The little waves, with their soft, white hands,
Efface the footprints in the sands
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls
Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;
The day returns, but nevermore
Returns the traveller to the shore,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

Pak Idrus said...

Capt's Longhouse, thanks for the return visit and that wonderful poetry. Indeed I love poetry for it does add color to our lives.

I think you should compile all those poetry into a book. It sure does made a great reading.

Have a nice day.
