    Are You Still Playing Flute?

    The Original Version of the Poem

    Masihkah Kau Bermain Seruling oleh Zurinah Hassan

    Masihkah kau bermain seruling

    walau waktu telah terlewat untuk kita bercinta

    aku semakin terasa bersalah

    melayani godaan irama

    lagu yang tersimpan pada lorong halus buluh

    dikeluarkan oleh nafas seniman

    diukir oleh bibir

    diatur oleh jari

    dilayangkan oleh alun angin

    menolak ke dasar rasa.

    Masihkah kau bermain seruling

    ketika kampung semakin sunyi

    sawah telah uzur

    waktu jadi terlalu mahal

    untuk memerhatikan hujan turun

    merenung jalur senja

    mengutip manik embun

    menghidu harum bunga.

    Masihkah kau bermain serulingketika aku terasa mata bersalah

    untuk melayani rasa rindu padamu

    di kota yang semakin kusut dan tenat

    adik-adikku menganggur dan sakit jiwa

    bangsaku dipecahkan oleh politik

    saudara diserang bom-bom ganas

    dunia sudah terlalu tua dan parah.

    Di sinilah berakhirnya percintaan kita

    kerana zaman sedang menuntut para seniman

    hidup di luar dirinya.

    Are You Still Playing Your Flute? by Zurinah HassanAre you still playing your flute?

    When there is hardly time for our love

    I am feeling guilty

    To be longing for your song

    The melody concealed in the slim hollow of the bamboo

    Uncovered by the breath of an artist

    Composed by his fingers

    Blown by the wind

    To the depth of my heart.

    2/7

    Are you still playing your flute?

    In the village so quiet and deserted

    Amidst the sick rice fields

    While here it has become a luxury

    To spend time watching the rain

    Gazing at the evening raysCollecting dew drops

    Or enjoying the fragrance of flowers.

    Are you still playing your flute?

    The more it disturbs my conscience

    to be thinking of you

    in the hazard of you

    my younger brothers unemployed and desperate

    my people disunited by politics

    my friend slaughtered mercilessly

    this world is too old and bleeding.

    SYNOPSIS

    This poem his about a persona who reminisces the time he/she spends when in a village.

    There are many things that are now luxury to her such as listening to the melody of the flute

    itself, gazing at the evening rays, collecting dew drops, or enjoying the fragrance of flowers.

    The village is now unpopulated as many have moved to the city. Now that she has moved on

    with her life, she wonders whether the flutist is still playing the flute. This is because, there

    are many challenges in the world today such as the world is dying, the unemployment issue

    and the people are disunited because of different political views.

    MASIHKAH KAU BERMAIN SERULING/Are you still playing your flute

    Sajak ini menggunakan gaya percakapan penyair dengan seseorang. Orang yang dimaksudkan di sini

    ialah seorang yang pandai bermain seruling. Sekali pandang ia seperti sajak percintaan kerana

    banyak menggunakan perkataan yang lembut dan romantis.

    Are you still playing your flute

    Are you still playing your flutewhen there is no time for our love

    I am feeling guilty

    to be longing for your song

    Tetapi percakapan yang lembut dan romantis dengan pemain seruling itu hanyalah satu cara atau

    gaya penyair meluahkan segala yang mengganggu fikirannya. Sajak ini bertemakan kemasyarakatan .

    Keseluruhannya merupakan luahan rasa penyair tentang keadaan masyarakat di negaranya dan

    antara bangsa yang penuh kemelut dan kacau bilau.

    Penyair mengenang sang pemain seruling. Sebenarnya yang dikenang oleh penyair ialah kampongyang sedang tenat.

    Are you still playing your flute

    in the village so quiet and deserted

    amidst the sick rice field

    Dia menceritakan tentang keadaan dirinya yang berada di kotakota yang sakit sedangkan kampong

    sudah sunyi kerana ditinggalkan oleh anak-anak muda. Apakah pemain seruling itu masih ada di

    kampong bermain serulingnya? . Ini juga bermaksud adakah sang pemain seruling masih

    4/7

    mempertahankan seni dan tradisinya. Alat musik seruling dipilih kerana inilah alat muzik yang paling

    dekat dengan alam. Cuma sebatang buluh dan tidak memerlukan teknologi canggih untuk

    menciptanya. Jadi semuanya balik kpd alam. Balik kepada keaslian.

    the melody concealed in the slim hollow of the bamboo

    uncovered by the breath of an artist

    composed by his lips

    arranged by his fingers

    blown by the wind

    to the depth of my heart

    Penyair merasa bersalah untuk melayan rasa rindu kepada pemain seruling itu. Begitulah rasa

    bersalahnya dia memikirkan sesuatu yang indah seperti seni . Di kota dia sepatutnya sibuk kerana di

    situ kehidupan berlalu dengan pantas.

    while here it has become a luxury

    to spend time watching the rain

    gazing at the evening rays

    collecting dew drops

    or sniffing scented flowers.

    Seolah-olah dia memberikan masanya kepada perkara-perkara yang remeh sedangkan kehidupan

    sedang dilanda oleh masalah yang sangat besar. Masalah-masalah ini dipaparkan dalam bait

    seterusnya. Pada masa itu ramai yang menganggur. Orang-orang kita berpecah belah kerana politik .

    Dan di merata dunia spt Bosnia dan Palestin, orang Islam sedang diburu oleh bom-bom ganas.

    in the hazard of this city

    my younger brothers unemployed and desperate

    my people thorn by politic

    my Muslim friends slaughtered mercilessly

    this world is old and badly injured.

    Is this the end of our love?

    time is forcing us as artists

    not to be ourselves.

    Ini bukan masa untuk memberi perhatian kepada seni. Ini adalah masa untuk bekerja keras. Apabila

    seniman tidak dapat melayani kecintaannya kepada seni maka itu seperti mereka dituntut untuk

    tidak menjadi seniman lagi

    5/7

    In the Midst of Hardship by Latiff MohidinAt dawn they returned home

    their soaky clothes torn

    and approached the stove

    their limbs marked by scratches

    their legs full of woundsbut on their brows

    there was not a sign of despair

    The whole day and night just passed

    they had to brave the horrendous flood

    in the water all the time

    between bloated carcasses

    and tiny chips of tree barks

    desperately looking for their sons

    albino buffalo that was never found

    They were born amidst hardshipand grew up without a sigh or a complaint

    now they are in the kitchen, making

    jokes while rolling their ciggarete leaves

    SYNOPSIS (OVERALL)

    This poem is about a family who faces hardship whereby their sons albino buffalo is

    nowhere to be found. A flood occurs and they go out to find the buffalo. They reach home

    early in the morning without the buffalo and yet there is no sign of despair in them.Meanwhile, they can still crack jokes and roll the cigarettes.

    SYNOPSIS (ACCORDING TO STANZA)

    STANZA 1

    They returned home at day break and headed for the stove. This is probably because they

    were hungry. However, I have also received some feedbacks saying that they went straight to

    the stove to dry themselves as they were drenched with the flood water. Their clothes were

    soaking wet and tattered. Their bodies were covered with scratches and wounds. Yet, they did

    not display any signs of being worried.

    STANZA 2

    They were out in the flood the whole day and night. They were surrounded by dead animals

    and parts of trees that had been destroyed by the flood. We know that the animals were

    already dead because of the phrase bloated carcasses. They searched desperately for their

    sons albino buffalo but were unable to find it.

    STANZA 3

    6/7

    They were born into poverty and difficulty, but they do not complain about their suffer.

    Instead, they sit in the kitchen, cracking jokes while smoking cigarettes. This shows that they

    face difficulties all the time and this time there is no different. They have inner strength that

    makes them strong to face any hardship poses to them.

    SETTING

    The setting of the poem is in the house.

    THEMES
