“The Best of Times” in Quenya By Findegil / Björn Fromén

06 Jul

Hari ini, tiba-tiba saya tertarik dengan bahasa yang digunakan oleh elf di LOTR. bahasa unik yang diciptakan oleh JR Tolkien. Dengan search di google, saya dapat sebuah puisi yang bagus artinya menurut saya. Berikut puisi yang dituliskan dengan bahasa elf dan bahasa inggris.

Lúron ammára sí,
tuilello lemba lotse equélie;
lúron ammára sí,
man ista pá nuóra ré, i ré, i ré?
A himya sillume,
na cuilen, melmen quante poldori,
á tyares termare,
an lúmion ammára sí, ná sí, ná sí!

Sí – ar lá i yáre úrénima.
Sí – nuóra ré vahaiya ná.
A himya sillume,
na cuilen, melmen quante poldori,
á tyares termare,
an lúmion ammára sí, ná sí, ná sí!

Literal translation

Carpe diem!
Of times [the] best [is] now,
from spring [the] small flower left behind has faded;
of times [the] best [is] now,
who knows about [the] day to be, the day, the day?
Stick to this hour,
[let there] be for life, for love full powers,
make it last,
for of hours [the] best [is] now, is now, is now.

Now – and not the former days unmemorable.
Now – [the] day to be is far away.
Stick to this hour,
[let there] be for life, for love full powers,
make it last,
for of hours [the] best [is] now, is now, is now.

Original lyrics (from La Cage aux Folles by Jerry Herman)

The best of times is now
What’s left of summer but a faded rose
The best of times is now
As for tomorrow well, who knows, who knows, who knows?
So hold this moment fast
And live and love as hard as you know how
And make this moment last
Because the best of times is now, is now, is now!

Now – not some forgotten yesterday
Now – tomorrow is too far away
So hold this moment fast
And live and love as hard as you know how
And make this moment last
Because the best of times is now, is now, is now!

 

A note for the singer
The tune necessitates elision of the final e’s in lots(e) [line 2] and yár(e) [line 9]

makna besar yang saya tangkap, yaitu setiap waktu yang kita lewati walaupun satu detik merupakan waktu terbaik yang diberikan oleh Allah sehingga tidak boleh disia-siakan sama sekali. Seperti dalam surat Al-Ashr yang menerangkan betapa pentingnya waktu itu. Semoga kita bisa sama-sama lebih menghargai waktu dan menghilangkan istilah ‘ngaret’.
