Cermin

Tacaliak muko di cermin

Sabana rancak jo puisi ko

Lah hilang se sakaliak mato

Lah tarakhir nak bakecek ambo sayang dek uda.

Minangkabau

The translation of my short love poem into Padang the Agam-Tanah Datar dialect of Padang city in Indonesia. There are still 6 million people who speak this language. This minangkabau poem comes from the north of the Sumatra island in Indonesia. This language belongs to the Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian languages. There are several dialect forms, a dozen!

Minangkabaus

For the Minangkabau people, filiation is matrilineal, with a mode of matrilocal residence. Women play a very important role, they own the majority of property. The heart of the man they love is their most precious possession! Padang is a port of Indonesia on the west coast of Sumatra, at the mouth of the Arau River on the Indian Ocean..
