While on a Voyage
Indonesian version below

Wrote this poem in high school back in 1962 as the answer to the question, "Give an example of alliteration."

(pronounce the W in while like V - like lots of people around the world do - but only there)

The whistling wind whittles wonderfully well
In the niche of a nautical night
As it silkenly sings above soft sullen swells
And frees from fat fetters the fettled fore flight
And I am the thrall that it thrusts thenly through
As I lay alone looking lovingly lo
Quite as quickly as covered the calm can it crew
And gallantly gather it's galing and go

Sedangkan pada Pelayaran

Angin bersiul mengukir dengan sangat baik
Di relung malam bahari
Nyani nyani selembut sutra
Di atas gelombang membengkak lembut dan muram
Dan membebaskan dari belenggu
Yang tebal yang sudah menahan sebelum terbang
Dan aku budak yang mendorong melalui diriku
Saat aku berbaring sendiri, lihatlah aku dengan kasih sayang
Secepat dia membungkus ketenangan bisa dia berkokok
