Translator’s notes: As you can see, line 1 rhymes with line 3 in the original, but I can’t find any way to preserve the form without butchering the ‘sound’ and ‘translation’ in the process. I did manage to keep the rhyme in line 2 and line 5.

This poem, like Sapardi’s other works, is formed by simple but vivid imagery. I really like how he juxtaposed the little girl with the umbrella with the fledgling by the prairie.

Little Girl

Lisa Santika Onggrid

There is a little girl across the drizzle
in her right hand an umbrella fumbling
her left hand waving tears
at the edge of the prairie, a tree
and a fledgling…
