George Manos (Editor). Timeless Love – A Modern Puntone Collection. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: eSastera Enterprise, 2018. 44 pages. Price: RM15 (+ Poslaju RM5.00).
Pieces of stones across the lands,
The morning dew wets them at random;
A book of puntones is in your hands,
May it bring you, but joy and wisdom.
Internationalization of the Malay’s Pantun (Puntone).
The book contains a collection of pantuns originally written in English (which we named puntones).
The 100 puntones were written by four writers from the Facebook group “E-Sastera Puntone”. They were George Manos from USA (Editor), and three Malaysian writers, Ahkarim, Irwan Abu Bakar, and Ilya Kablam.
♣ This book includes a complete guide for writing the puntones.
We hope that this book will help to disseminate the Malay literary genre of pantun to the international community (in English).
SINGING A PANTUN. The “Rasa Sayang” song –
Buah cempedak di luar pagar,
Ambil galah tolong jolokkan;
Kami murid baru belajar,
Kalau salah tolong tunjukkan.
Price: USD4. Postage: USD6. (For Malaysian: RM15 + Poslaju RM5).
