Pucung Gangsal Prakawis

Seperti ditulis oleh Tiyo Widodo dalam Kompasiana.com

Nagri iki
saweg nandhang cidra ati
kathah durangkara
ngalor-ngidul gara-gara
yen sinawang
kaya ngelak banyu abang

Laku becik
kudune mituwuh apik
nanging sing kalakon
satuhu ora kebathon
kang prasetya
kapilara kapidana
Lembah manah
prayogane nggebyah uyah
panggalih kang edi
kudune mepeti werdi
sing ginawa
lathi alus lan wibawa
Slira manteb
rasa lantip ati landhep
sabarang prakara
ora sirna kanthi mawa
sareh mikir
durjana bakal sumingkir
Titi wanci
mlakune tan ana mati
pratikna ing karep
rumatana nganti jangkep
teteg puguh
kasembatan ing panggayuh

I'll be over you (Toto, 1986)

sweetslyrics.com

Some people live their dreams
Some people close their eyes
Some people's destiny
Passes by

There are no guarantees
There are no alibis
That's how our love must be
Don't ask why

Bridge:
It takes some time
God knows how long
I know that I can forget you

As soon as my heart stops breakin'
Anticipating
As soon as forever is through
I'll be over you

Remembering times gone by
Promises we once made
What are the reasons why
Nothing stays the same

Bridge:
There were the nights holding you close
Someday I'll try to forget them
Someday I'll be over you

Rain Is Growing, And So Is Hope

Promising Wednesday
Thank you for the colourful Wednesday
Today is,
please never get bored,
once again a truly Wednesday.
The soil is for the first time actually wet.
Shower from heaven in the afternoon gave more hope
for the crops.
It is a kind that offers a bit smile
in the middle of drought.
The after-the-rain smell
is legendary
and my spirit grows.

Purnama Oktober 2011

Dikutip dari status Facebook saya, Kamis petang, 13 Oktober 2011


bulan merah jambu luruh di kotaku (asli ini bukan lagu)... ku duduk menghadap ke timur di pertigaan legendaris itu, tidak terlalu sliwar-liwer komuter jadi suasana syahdu...
dari sisi kanan bawah dari pandang mata ku, menyertai dengan setia lonely star (opo kuwi, Venus ya ketokke?). meski langit tidak terlalu cerah, tapi cahya rembulan berpendar tanpa penghalang (arah jam 11 dari posisi dudukku).
andaikan lampu neon tidak membuat anomali cahaya di sekitarku, pasti lebih indah suasanyana.... jalan relatip sepi, suara kompor gas juga tak terlalu mbrebegi....
19 menit berlalu kok rembulannya makin meninggi? jadi mendangak ni aku kalo memandangnya.... ehm, tapi makin tak berpenghalang. sekarang bebas lepas di angkasa.... kok nggak jatuh yaa? 
di bawah sinar bulan purnama, hati rindu jadi senang... tapi nggak ada gitar berbunyi riang gembira.... adanya suara wajan beradu dengan solet.... ah rupanya ada orang sedang pesan mie.... jan kok ndadak bakulan mie barang; mbok sudah nasi bungkus saja.... 
mendiskusikan tentang hewan qurban, kambing/sapi untuk qurban itu apa wajip jantan, atau betina juga boleh? kalo yang kudengar dari pengajian malem ini (baru saja selesai, tapi aku ndengarkan dari kamar kos), itu tidak ada kewajiban harus jantan. dari genteng kaca, rembulan tetap menemani. ah, bentar, mbul, aku bergabung lagi...tunggu ya...
 bertambah jauh malam dari petang, sang Venus (asumsiku) makin sejajar dengan rembulan. sinarnya terpantul pada galon tandon air aluminium di atas balkon rumah tingkat sebelah warung prasmanan. tidak menyilaukan, justru sangat adem dipandang.... 
tiba pada suatu masa rembulanku beringsut sejenak di balik dedaunan pohon besar di atas tempatku duduk. pada saat bersamaan di sebelahku bergumam seorang pengunjung warung mengeluhkan pekerjaannya.
ah, bukan momentum yang baik, mendingan ku tinggal sejenak ke markasnya Pak Dib....kedamaian jangan cepat berlalu deh :) 
woo, ternyata itu bukan Venus tapi Yupiter....lewat tengah malam, setelah sempat liyer-liyer teklak-tekluk mata berat, mak jenggirat memandang ke arah langit....wah! bintang berhamburan.... meskipun tidak terlalu banyak... sekelebat halo melingkar meski samar-samar

Hell was made in Heaven

There was a time
Eating your mind
Eating your heart and your soul
Down to the bone
Always alone
Nobody waiting at home

Now allow that we unite our fires
Shout it out
Give yourself to me
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Hell was made in heaven
I was made for you
Hell was made in heaven
Made for loving you in sin

Ten years ago
You made the vow
Promised your life and your love
Of all that you're paid
Nothing returned
What is enough is enough

Now allow that we unite our fires
Shout it out
Give yourself to me
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Hell was made in heaven
I was made in heaven
Made for loving you in sin

Indonesia Tetap No.1

Saya dengar keluh-kesah mereka tentangmu
menyimak harapan sia-sia padamu
hujatan menerpa keharibaanmu
penilaian kotor dan jorok tentang lingkunganmu
cacian rusak dan binasa akan alammu
cercaan kemunafikan beralamat rumahmu
cibiran yang menyepelekanmu

Itu semua tidak akan melunturkanku
akan cinta dan setiaku
tidak pula padamkan harapku
akan kejayaan dan kemuliaanmu
kau benar, itu memang kau bangsaku
kau salah, itu yang harus kubantu perbaiki untukmu
tiada setitikpun asa untuk meninggalkanmu
untuk mengabaikanmu
tiada sesal senoktahpun terlahir di pangkuanmu
ini ungkapan kebangganku
sebagai manusia berukir namamu

Biarkan celoteh-celoteh itu menderu
tentang bodoh, malas, terbelakang,
yang dengan bebas dan fasih terlafalkan dalam bahasamu
kitapun mampu membuat mereka tersedu-sedu
mereka tak akan menari tanpa iramamu,tak akan menyanyi tanpa nadamu
mereka bak sampah tanpa keberadaanmu, sampah!, sampah!, chuaaaahh!!!

INDONESIAKU,
biarpun badai menerpamu, biarpun ombak menghantammu
biarpun orang sendiri makin tak mempercayaimu,
bagi saya kamu tetap NOMOR SATU
siapapun yang melecehkan dirimu, menjelek-jelekkanmu
tak peduli itu bagian darimu
pada mereka saya tak akan segan berteriak...
Asu!! Fuck you!!

Kridhaning Panggalih

tengah wengi wus sawantara lingsir
pinarak candra ing sak legoking wukir
dene para abdi saha nayakaning praja ing sisih wetan
taksih manganendra dumugining kidung kukila

netra angglayut namung pijer waspadha
ana ing sembir kiwa-tengen mutah kuwaya
saya pedhes nanging saya waskitha

pasaren iseh adoh saka panjangka
arepa pasewakan sampun paripurna
tuwuh mring tyas batin ngalebet
yen dangu taksih anggenipun ngalembana

inggih punika gelaripun jagat jinantra
tan ana watesanipun ugi sarehipun
inggih mboten sanes nuli jangkep,
karenteging panggalih

Fields of Gold

Performer: Sting

Photo credit: http://www.irishviews.com/fields-of-gold.jpg
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in the fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in the fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in the fields of gold
We'll walk in the fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold

Longing

Performer: Helloween

Feelings come and go - I've never known
Something longs to grow - won't let go
Spirits 'round my head - are whispering
I turn inside instead - of wondering

Deep inside of me - I know there's got to be
A different kind of truth - that sets the spirit free
If I don't wanna know - what's written inside me
How could I see anything - how could I be anything?

Restless minds have searched - long before
The truth will be the same - for evermore
The mightiness of trees - that you can feel
Can give you all you need - just listen still

Here is love and there is pain
It's all around, it's all the same
There's nothing new that I could tell to you

But still there is the universe inside of us that never bursts
We might not know the meaning yet, but I'm sure we can't reject
The truth that is in everything - that is and has been and will be

There is a long way to go - there is a high place to know
There is a world to go through - but there's so much more to do
Until we're home!

Deep inside of me - I know there's...

Feelings come and go - I've never known

Damainya Cinta

Performer: Gigi

Sinar matamu pancarkan kedamaian
yang selama ini kita impikan
lirih suaramu taburkan kesejukan
besar artinya untuk diriku

Lembut sikapmu hadirkan kehangatan
yang slalu ingin kuungkapkan
manis senyummu getarkan jiwa ini
abadilah adanya dirimu

Damainya cinta untukmu
yang takkan mungkin hilang semua
lembutnya cinta untukku
kan kupeluk selamanya

Abadinya cinta menunggu di sana
raih dengan hati yang terbuka

All My Love

Performer: Led Zeppelin

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon
The tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom
Is this to end or just begin?

All of my love, all of my love, All of my love to you,now.

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Arianne, one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin

All of my love, all of my love, All of my love to you,now.

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
His is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind

Silence the Noise

In the crowds of hundreds commuters
mind was busy thinking
what for it's being there
where ears  continued going banged
by the shouts of decibels

At the corner of the sidewalks
down the Metro of ambushes
to blow your nerves
still the will couldn't give in the wheels

Justice in the loaded barrels
it's what being applied when you're on the street
as you're on your own
there'll be no one but you
to step aside the bumpy roads

As the crowds went nasty and mean
it's on your feet how the walk be made
just like in your vessels where the blood be flown

(Kucingan Mas Roni, Jl. Hayamwuruk Pleburan, Semarang, 27 Pebruari 2011)

That's the Way It Is

But I know it will come to you yeah

In this thing called love

When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt

And that's the way it is

When you question me for a simple answer
I don't know what to say, no
But it's plain to see, if we stick together
You're gonna find the way, yeah

So don't surrender coz' you can win
In this thing called looove

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt

And that's the way it is

When life is empty with no tomorrow
And loneliness starts to call
Baby don't worry, forget your sorrow
'Cause love's gonna conquer it all, ALL!

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

Don't give up on your faith
love comes to those who believe it
and that's the way it is.

That's the way it is, yeah
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is.

Stone cold River

A river splits the valley
its length is so distant as it may be
up the stream couple miles away
as you walk up there on your naked feet

Through the downstream where bushes lie
and stony road built in between
only a few dares take the risks
where misty field keeps silent still
where ghosts and beasts keep marching on

And the valley remains unchanged
in purity which never be ashamed
and the river endures the name
no one takes chance except who dares

Believe In Your Heart

 Poet: Stacey Chillemi

I woke up one night in the hours of darkness,
I sat up straight in my bed to find a shimmering light in my closet,
But their where no lights on in the room,
I got up and went slowly toward the closet,
To find a pair of gold wings,
An angel was standing by my side,
“What do I do with these gold wings?” I asked the angel
“Put the wings on my child.” Answered the angel
I put the wings on flew to a place that had many stars,
The angel then appeared and said, “Follow your heart, your goals and your dreams.”
Only you know what is right for you
Anything is possible
Miracles do come true ,
Hope and dreams are a reality if let them be,
Life can be wonderful if you let it be,

How Fragile We Are

Performed by: Sting
If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay
Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are

Lembayung Bali

Performed by Saras Dewi

Menatap lembayung di langit Bali
Dan kusadari betapa berharga kenanganmu
Di kala jiwaku tak terbatas
Bebas berandai memulang waktu

Hingga masih bisa kuraih dirimu
Sosok yang mengisi kehampaan kalbuku
Bilakah diriku berucap maaf
Masa yang tlah kuingkari dan meninggalkanmu
Oh cinta

Teman yang terhanyut arus waktu
Mekar mendewasa
Masih kusimpan suara tawa kita
Kembalilah sahabat lawasku
Semarakkan keheningan lubuk

Hingga masih bisa kurangkul kalian
Sosok yang mengaliri cawan hidupku
Bilakah kita menangis bersama
Tegar melawan tempaan semangatmu itu
Oh jingga

Hingga masih bisa kujangkau cahaya
Senyum yang menyalakan hasrat diriku
Bilakah kuhentikan pasir waktu
Tak terbangun dari khayal keajaiban ini
Oh mimpi

Andai ada satu cara
Tuk kembali menatap agung surya-Mu

Sahabat Sejati

Song/lyrics: Sheila on 7

Sahabat sejatiku, hilangkah dari ingatanmu
Di hari kita saling berbagi
Dengan kotak sejuta mimpi, aku datang menghampirimu
Kuperlihatkan semua hartaku

Kita s'lalu berpendapat, kita ini yang terhebat
Kesombongan di masa muda yang indah
Aku raja kaupun raja
Aku hitam kaupun hitam
Arti teman lebih dari sekedar materi

Pegang pundakku, jangan pernah lepaskan
Bila ku mulai lelah; lelah dan tak bersinar
Remas sayapku, jangan pernah lepaskan
Bila ku ingin terbang; terbang meninggalkanmu

Ku s'lalu membanggakanmu, kaupun s'lalu menyanjungku
Aku dan kamu darah abadi
Demi bermain bersama, kita duakan segalanya
Merdeka kita, kita merdeka

Tak pernah kita pikirkan
Ujung perjalanan ini
Tak usah kita pikirkan
ujung perjalanan ini

De Brevitate Vitae (Gaudeamus igitur)

Gaudeamus igitur, Juvenes dum sumus
Gaudeamus igitur, Juvenes dum sumus
Post jucundam juventutem, Post molestam senectutem
Nos habebit humus, nos habebit humus

Ubi sunt qui ante nos
In mundo fuere?
Vadite ad superos
Transite in inferos
Hos si vis videre

Vita nostra brevis est
Brevi finietur
Venit mors velociter
Rapit nos atrociter
Nemini parcetur

Vivat academia! Vivat professores!
Vivat academia! Vivat professores!
Vivat membrum quod libet, Vivant membra quae libet
Semper sint in flore, semper sint in flore

Vivant omnes virgines
Faciles, foromosae
Vivant et mulieres
Tenerae, amabiles
Bonae, laboriosae

Vivant et res publica
et qui illam regit
Vivat nostra civitas
Maenactum caritas
Quae nos hic protegit

Pereat tristitia
Pereant osores
Perat diabolus
Quivis antiburschius
Atque irrisores

King for A 1000 Years

 Performer: Helloween
Lyrics: Andi Deris

Forgotten in his Reich of shadows
Banned forever, one thought
The Lord of evil was given name and place
Of the seventh sea, shelter of the seventh key
Who was betraying us? I guess you know
There would be more than one name to name
Now he, whose name is many, searches for the one...
The one strong enough to survive as his terrestrial hand
enticement and promise will crown a king
A puppet on a string - for a 1000 years,
...so they sing...

Wouldn't it be nice
To plunder with your eyes
Whatever there's for you to see
Is yours to be
Let me be there
Just tell me you don't care
Just say you pay me after life
However high the price

I know your secrets
I know it all

I know your secrets
I see the hidden without light
I am your sickness
Biting you right behind your eyes
Don't try to kill me
I cannot die, a death you know
You and I will be
Heaven above and hell below

Brother, believe me
Father, conceive me
Perceive me

Time will be a turning wheel
We shove or retard
Time will be a toy
Time we will enjoy
Say you want to live forever
Minus one day
Say you will obey and I

I will show - I will show
I will show your Reich of gold
And I will show - I will show
I will show you friend and foe

Wouldn't it be nice
To reign and to decide
Whatever there's attracting you
Will give its due to you
Let me be there
Just say you want to share
A power no one will withstand
Just be my human hand

I know your secrets
You want it all

I will show - I will show
I will show you Reich of gold
And I will show - I will show
I will show you friend and foe


Don't release us now he sees us
No illusions, executions
The damnation, the annihilation
The non-stopping celebration

Alienation, elimination, chaos, no exoneration
No believers, all deceivers, no illusion, executions

We are King For A 1000 Years
We are king of a million tears
We're the ones who bring desire
Binding their greed and fears
We are king of fallen men
We are keepers of the damned
Turning hope into obsession
We are the king
We are The King For A 1000 Years

Ages of fire - Aeon of darkness, fear and hate
Wake up my creatures
Stand up you bringers of man's fate
No one can kill us
We cannot die, a death one knows
Mankind is sleeping
My victory near, their end so close

I know their secrets
I know it all


Good bye sorrows
Borrow me your hand to turn the key
Release me - Believe me
Good bye sorrows
Never more you have to fear futurity
Good bye sorrows
Borrow me your hand to turn the key
Conceive me

Time will be a turning wheel
We shove or retard
Time will be a toy
Time we will enjoy
Say you want to live forever
Minus one day
Say you will obey and I

I will show - I will show
I will show your Reich of gold
And I will show - I will show
I will show you friend and foe

We are King For A 1000 Years
We are king of a million tears
We're the ones who bring desire
Binding their greed and fears
We are king of fallen men
We are keepers of the damned
Turning hope into obsession
We are the king
We are The King For A 1000 Years

Footprint on Your Heart

Someone will walk into your life,
Leave a footprint on your heart,
Turn it into a mudroom cluttered
With encrusted boots, children's mittens,
Scratchy scarves—
Where you linger to unwrap 
Or ready yourself for rough exits 
Into howling gales or onto 
Frozen car seats, expulsions
Into the great outdoors where touch
Is muffled, noses glisten,
And breaths stab,
So that when you meet someone
Who is leaving your life
You will be able to wave stiffIcy mitts and look forward
To an evening in spring
When you can fold winter away
Until your next encounter with
A chill so numbing you strew
The heart's antechamber
With layers of rural garble.
 
(A poem by Gary Lenhart | www.poets.org)
