Bayanganna empian e kaca  Neka puisi bule se paling begus  Tapi, empian elang cek cepetta  Neka bule terkahir ngocak, Bule seneng ka empian

Madurese poem, translated by Dila

A variation of my little love poem of love into madurese (Madhura), the language of Madura (Madoera) island in Indonesia. Madura is a very populated arid island, part of the territories that Indonesia tries to depopulate a little, by displacing its populations. The madurais is a Malayo-Sumbawan language spoken by 13 million people. It is the fourth language of Indonesia. It can be written with different alphabets, here it is in Latin letters. Madura is quoted from the 14th century, by the poet Mpu Prapanca in his poem the Nagarakertagama. Located in northeast Java, it is a low island dominated by a volcanic massif, which overcrowded, maintains a permanent emigration to the west of Java.
