KATAK INGIN JADI KERBAU

Katak dalam tempurung…

Saya makhluk cebol bermata belok gaya mengantuk, berkulit licin berkutil-kutil, mulut dan kerongkongan lebar dan besar untuk kepentingan menyanyi dengan suara parau dan berkaki belakang panjang yang dirancang untuk keahlian melompat (yang belakangan menjadi kesenangan).

Menyanyi kencang tanpa malu membanggakan diri sendiri yang merajai dunia bawah kubah tempurung. Melompat girang bergeser kian kemari dalam tempurung tanpa tahu kemana bergeser. Sorong ke kanan, sorong ke kiri, tra la la la la la…

Adakah dunia yang terang dan luas diluar sana? Jika ya, datanglah wahai Kekuatan yang membebaskanku dari kubah kecilku ini. Jikalau nanti Kekuatan itu datang, akankah sang katak menjadi kerbau?

Frog under coconut shell…

I am a small creature with bulging sleepy eyes, slippery pimpled skin, big mouth and throat to sing in uncontrolled tunes and long back legs designed for hopping expertise (recently becoming hobby).

Singing loudly without shame blowing its own trumpet, ruling the kingdom beneath the coconut shell dome. Happily hopping moving the shell around not knowing where to go. Left, right, left, right, tra la la la la la…

Is there a bright and wide world out there? If yes, do come oye Power that release me out of this little dome of mine. And, if the Power comes, will it turn this frog to a buffalo?

Kodhok sajroning bathok murep

Aku ini kewan sing matane mlorok ngantuk, kulite lunyu kutilen, cangkem lan gorokane gedhe minangka kanggo lelagon kanthi swara glorok, lan sikil mburi dawa kang rinancang kanggo mlumpat kapinteran (sing keri-keri dadi kasenengan).

Lelagon ora eram bantere tanpa isin tansah gumedhe sombong, tumindak amindha raja sangisoring kubah bathok murep. Mlumpat kanthi seneng mrana mrene tanpa angerteni menyang endi lungane. Kiwa, tengen, kiwa, tengen, tra la la la la la…

Apa ana donya kang padhang njingglang lan amba ing njaba kana? Yen ana, tumekaa Daya kang isa mbebasake saka kubah cilikku iki. Lan yen wis teka, apa isa Daya iku ndadekake si kodhok malih kebo?
