PANTUN SUNGAI UNTUK HARI RAYA

oleh Dr Radiah Yusoff dan Prof. Dr. Chan Ngai Weng

Tepian pantai disusuri,
Larut malam tak pulang-pulang;
Seikhlas hati menyusun jari,
Kepada sungai dan hutan manusia berhutang.

Ke kebun sayur melalui titi,
Titi dibina oleh Pak Kodi;
Sungai dicemari hampir mati.
Pabila mati apa pun tak jadi.

Sambal kacang berminyak- minyak,
Dicolek dengan ketupat nasi;
Hati bersih kawan pun banyak,
Pencemar sungai musuh gergasi.

Budak-budak menangkap puru,
Orang tua menanam padi;
Pencemar sungai membina seteru,
Pencinta sungai membalas budi.

Pagi Syawal berbaju kurta,
Ke rumah jiran berjalan kaki;
Air nilainya bak intan permata,
Sungai pastinya lubuk rezeki.

SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI. MAAF ZAHIR DAN BATIN. CINTAILAH SUNGAI & GUNAKAN AIR SECARA BERHEMAT.
