Dian Fitrah Hervianti


Indonesia Tumpah Darahku!

Near the shores of a lovely land
Where waves spletter on sand
And foam spreads in white bands
The green sea sprouts islands
Covered with noble mountains,
Island set in the ocean like fountains
Tumpah darahku Indonesia namanya.

See palm trees bend and lean
Barely rusling, motion half seen,
Dotted on the beach like slivers of green,
Peaceful pickets in a honest fence
Listen to the waves, song after song
Of men and women who belonged
Indonesia namanya, tanah airku

                                     Muhammad Yamin 1928
