puisi bahasa inggris

Puisi adalah suatu karya sastra yang mengungkapkan pikiran dan perasaan penyair secara imajinatif dan disusun dengan memfokuskan semua kekuatan bahasa dalam sebuah struktur fisik dan struktur batinnya. Demikian definisi puisi menurut ahli sastra Indonesia Herman J. Waluyo.

Membuat serangkaian puisi dikenal gampang-gampang susah. Dibutuhkan daya imajinasi yang terlatih untuk bisa menciptakan kata-kata indah penuh makna, terutama puisi dalam Bahasa Inggris. Selain dibutuhkan perbendaharaan kosakata yang melimpah, seseorang harus mampu memahami aturan tata bahasanya.

1. Sunset

Puisi Bahasa Inggris by Ruby Archer

To sunset water quivering in a blush
Appeals the glory of the sunset sky
Down gazing—an imploring conqueror—
With eyes that love to eyes awakening.

2. The Sea of Sunset

by Emily Dickinson

This is the land the sunset washes,
These are the banks of the Yellow Sea;
Where it rose, or whither it rushes,
These are the western mystery!

Night after night her purple traffic
Strews the landing with opal bales;
Merchantmen poise upon horizons,
Dip, and vanish with fairy sails.

3. The Juggler of Day

Puisi Bahasa Inggris by Emily Dickinson

Blazing in gold and quenching in purple,
Leaping like leopards to the sky,
Then at the feet of the old horizon
Laying her spotted face, to die;

Stooping as low as the otter’s window,
Touching the roof and tinting the barn,
Kissing her bonnet to the meadow, —
And the juggler of day is gone!

4. The Sunset, Woven of Soft Lights

by Katharine Lee Bates

The sunset, woven of soft lights
And tender colors, lingers late,
As looking back on all day’s dreary plights,
Compassionate;

— The foolish day of hopes so high,
Who counts her hours by blunders now,
Yet wears at last this jewel-crown of sky
Upon her brow.

Out to eternity she goes,
Not for her failure scorned, but see!
Our poor day flushed with beauty, one more rose
On God’s rose-tree.

5. Out of the Sunset’s Red

Puisi Bahasa Inggris by William Stanley Braithwaite

Out of the sunset’s red
Into the blushing sea,
The winds of day drop dead
And dreams come home to me. —
The sea is still,— and apart
Is a stillness in my heart.

The night comes up the beach,
The dark steals over all,
Though silence has no speech
I hear the sea-dreams call
To my heart; — and in reply
It answers with a sigh.

6. Sunset

by Paul Laurence Dunbar

The river sleeps beneath the sky,
And clasps the shadows to its breast;
The crescent moon shines dim on high;
And in the lately radiant west
The gold is fading into gray.
Now stills the lark his festive lay,
And mourns with me the dying day.

While in the south the first faint star
Lifts to the night its silver face,
And twinkles to the moon afar
Across the heaven’s graying space,
Low murmurs reach me from the town,
As Day puts on her sombre crown,
And shakes her mantle darkly down.

7. Sunset

Puisi Bahasa Inggris by Raymond Garfield Dandridge

Round appearing,
Illuminant fire,
Built in space,
Shedding heat,
Traveling westward;
Your photosphere
Conflicts
With dwindl’ing light
Of stricken day,
At dying hour.
Emerging from
The reek appears
At distant edge of earth,
A straightened rainbow
Reaching far into the sky—
You are an artist, Sun!

8. At Twilight

Puisi Bahasa Inggris by Bliss Carman

Now the fire is lighted

On the chimney stone,
Day goes down the valley,
I am left alone.

Now the misty purple
Floods the darkened vale,
And the stars come out
On the twilight trail.

The mountain river murmurs
In his rocky bed,
And the stealthy shadows
Fill the house with dread.

Then I hear your laughter
At the open door, —
Brightly burns the fire,
I need fear no more.

9. Sundown

by John Charles McNeill

Hills wrapped in gray, standing along the west;
Clouds, dimly lighted, gathering slowly;
The star of peace at watch above the crest—
Oh, holy, holy, holy!

We know, O Lord, so little what is best;
Wingless, we move so lowly;
But in thy calm all-knowledge let us rest—
Oh, holy, holy, holy!

10. Ashes of Roses

Puisi Bahasa Inggris by Elaine

Soft on the sunset sky
Bright daylight closes,
Leaving, when light doth die,
Pale hues that mingling lie—
Ashes of roses.

When love’s warm sun is set,
Love’s brightness closes;
Eyes with hot tears are wet,
In hearts there linger yet
Ashes of roses.
