Bayanganmu di dalam cermin
Adalah puisi terindahku
Tetapi begitu cepat ianya hilang
Terakhir dariku "aku cinta padamu"

HER the siren
Poem "the mirror" translated into Malay (Malaysian, ملايو, bahasa melayu). My imagination decided to make it the home of pirates and shipwrecked women. Undoubtedly I read too much in my youth of those cheap adventure novels which carried me away to those distant lands.
Then I decide today that this poem about love is for the Eastern land of the little mermaids, because amidst all these witches there is, HER, the siren of a new tale to be invented.
Malay is the national language of Malaysia and has 260 million speakers. There are several forms in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. It is written with the Latin alphabet.
The oldest known documents in Malay are cave inscriptions of the 6th century. Literature will begin in the 15th century with the Arabic alphabet. Alongside a popular literature develops a court literature, wrote as a poetry (syair), generally adapted from foreign sources. It processes Mahabharata, or Mahomet.
In 1600 Hamzah Fansuri composes mystics syair with great poetic density; A few decades later, Nur ur-Dinar-Raniri preaches a return to orthodoxy. At the disappearance of the sultanates, the classical Malay literature tended to be extinguished a little to be replaced around 1900 by the modern Malay literature.
This literature is inspired by the Western and the Middle East model, mention Syed Syeukh bin Ahmad al-Hadi's work.
