Now that she has moved on</p><p>with her life, she wonders whether the flutist is still playing the flute. This is because, there</p><p>are many challenges in the world today such as the world is dying, the unemployment issue</p><p>and the people are disunited because of different political views.</p><p>THEMES</p><p> Family commitments Priorities in life Neglect of ones duties</p><p>MORAL VALUES</p><p> We should be aware of our family commitments and carry them out properly. Everyone has priorities in, life and we should know what is important and what is not. Following a hobby is good but there is a time for work and a time for play.</p><p>POINT OF VIEW</p><p> The poem is the first point of view.

Orang yang dimaksudkan di sini</p><p>ialah seorang yang pandai bermain seruling. Sekali pandang ia seperti sajak percintaan kerana</p><p>banyak menggunakan perkataan yang lembut dan romantis.</p><p>Are you still playing your flute</p><p>Are you still playing your flutewhen there is no time for our love</p><p>I am feeling guilty</p><p>to be longing for your song</p><p>Tetapi percakapan yang lembut dan romantis dengan pemain seruling itu hanyalah satu cara atau</p><p>gaya penyair meluahkan segala yang mengganggu fikirannya. Sajak ini bertemakan kemasyarakatan .</p><p>Keseluruhannya merupakan luahan rasa penyair tentang keadaan masyarakat di negaranya dan</p><p>antara bangsa yang penuh kemelut dan kacau bilau.</p><p>Penyair mengenang sang pemain seruling. Sebenarnya yang dikenang oleh penyair ialah kampongyang sedang tenat.</p><p>Are you still playing your flute</p><p>in the village so quiet and deserted</p><p>amidst the sick rice field</p><p>Dia menceritakan tentang keadaan dirinya yang berada di kotakota yang sakit sedangkan kampong</p><p>sudah sunyi kerana ditinggalkan oleh anak-anak muda. Apakah pemain seruling itu masih ada di</p><p>kampong bermain serulingnya? . Ini juga bermaksud adakah sang pemain seruling masih</p></li><li><p>7/29/2019 poem SPM (Are You Still Playing your flute)</p><p> 4/7</p><p>mempertahankan seni dan tradisinya. Alat musik seruling dipilih kerana inilah alat muzik yang paling</p><p>dekat dengan alam. Cuma sebatang buluh dan tidak memerlukan teknologi canggih untuk</p><p>menciptanya. Jadi semuanya balik kpd alam. Balik kepada keaslian.</p><p>the melody concealed in the slim hollow of the bamboo</p><p>uncovered by the breath of an artist</p><p>composed by his lips</p><p>arranged by his fingers</p><p>blown by the wind</p><p>to the depth of my heart</p><p>Penyair merasa bersalah untuk melayan rasa rindu kepada pemain seruling itu. Begitulah rasa</p><p>bersalahnya dia memikirkan sesuatu yang indah seperti seni . Di kota dia sepatutnya sibuk kerana di</p><p>situ kehidupan berlalu dengan pantas.</p><p>while here it has become a luxury</p><p>to spend time watching the rain</p><p>gazing at the evening rays</p><p>collecting dew drops</p><p>or sniffing scented flowers.</p><p>Seolah-olah dia memberikan masanya kepada perkara-perkara yang remeh sedangkan kehidupan</p><p>sedang dilanda oleh masalah yang sangat besar. Masalah-masalah ini dipaparkan dalam bait</p><p>seterusnya. Pada masa itu ramai yang menganggur. Orang-orang kita berpecah belah kerana politik .</p><p>Dan di merata dunia spt Bosnia dan Palestin, orang Islam sedang diburu oleh bom-bom ganas.</p><p>in the hazard of this city</p><p>my younger brothers unemployed and desperate</p><p>my people thorn by politic</p><p>my Muslim friends slaughtered mercilessly</p><p>this world is old and badly injured.</p><p>Is this the end of our love?</p><p>time is forcing us as artists</p><p>not to be ourselves.</p><p>Ini bukan masa untuk memberi perhatian kepada seni. Ini adalah masa untuk bekerja keras. Apabila</p><p>seniman tidak dapat melayani kecintaannya kepada seni maka itu seperti mereka dituntut untuk</p><p>tidak menjadi seniman lagi</p></li><li><p>7/29/2019 poem SPM (Are You Still Playing your flute)</p><p> 5/7</p><p>In the Midst of Hardship by Latiff MohidinAt dawn they returned home</p><p>their soaky clothes torn</p><p>and approached the stove</p><p>their limbs marked by scratches</p><p>their legs full of woundsbut on their brows</p><p>there was not a sign of despair</p><p>The whole day and night just passed</p><p>they had to brave the horrendous flood</p><p>in the water all the time</p><p>between bloated carcasses</p><p>and tiny chips of tree barks</p><p>desperately looking for their sons</p><p>albino buffalo that was never found</p><p>They were born amidst hardshipand grew up without a sigh or a complaint</p><p>now they are in the kitchen, making</p><p>jokes while rolling their ciggarete leaves</p><p>SYNOPSIS (OVERALL)</p><p>This poem is about a family who faces hardship whereby their sons albino buffalo is</p><p>nowhere to be found.

This is probably because they</p><p>were hungry. However, I have also received some feedbacks saying that they went straight to</p><p>the stove to dry themselves as they were drenched with the flood water. Their clothes were</p><p>soaking wet and tattered. Their bodies were covered with scratches and wounds. Yet, they did</p><p>not display any signs of being worried.</p><p>STANZA 2</p><p>They were out in the flood the whole day and night. They were surrounded by dead animals</p><p>and parts of trees that had been destroyed by the flood. We know that the animals were</p><p>already dead because of the phrase bloated carcasses.

This shows that they</p><p>face difficulties all the time and this time there is no different. They have inner strength that</p><p>makes them strong to face any hardship poses to them.</p><p>SETTING</p><p>The setting of the poem is in the house.</p><p>THEMES</p><p> Being resilience when facing hardship Family love Acceptance of way of life</p><p>MORAL VALUES</p><p>1.
