Buat Apa


Buat apa uang berlebih
Jika tak dapat menikmati
Buat apa harta yang banyak
Jika keluarga tak dekat
Buat apa menyombongkan diri
Jika bukan usaha sendiri
Buat apa berdoa dan memuji
Jika tak setulus hati

Buat apa kekuasaan besar
Jika tak membela yang benar
Buat apa umur yang panjang
Jika kebahagiaan tak kau rasakan
Buat apa mengejar kejayaan
Jika akhirnya terlupakan
Buat apa bermain-main dengan kata
Jika tak ada sesuatu yang nyata

Buat apa kekuatan dashyat
Jika dendam terus kau ingat
Buat apa menjadi yang terbaik
Jika tak membuatmu menarik
Buat apa mati-matian mengolah raga
Jika kesehatan tak dijaga
Buat apa terus memperluas
Jika diliputi rasa tak puas

Buat apa berteman
Jika untuk mencari keuntungan
Buat apa memberi kesempatan
Jika selalu mencari kesalahan
Buat apa membuat pilihan
Jika dari awal tak pernah ada lain jalan
Buat diliputi kemujuran
Jika tak mendapatkan apa yang diinginkan

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
