Puisi Bahasa Inggris dan Artinya

1. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Kehidupan


Oleh Edgar Allan Poe


From childhood’s hour I have not been

As others were—I have not seen

As others saw—I could not bring

My passions from a common spring—

From the same source I have not taken

My sorrow—I could not awaken

My heart to joy at the same tone—

And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone—

Then—in my childhood—in the dawn

Of a most stormy life—was drawn

From ev’ry depth of good and ill

The mystery which binds me still—

From the torrent, or the fountain—

From the red cliff of the mountain—

From the sun that ’round me roll’d

In its autumn tint of gold—

From the lightning in the sky

As it pass’d me flying by—

From the thunder, and the storm—

And the cloud that took the form

(When the rest of Heaven was blue)

Of a demon in my view—

2. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Ibu

To My Mother

Oleh Edgar Allan Poe


Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,

The angels, whispering to one another,

Can find, among their burning terms of love,

None so devotional as that of “Mother,”

Therefore by that dear name I long have called you—

You who are more than mother unto me,

And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you

In setting my Virginia’s spirit free.

My mother—my own mother, who died early,

Was but the mother of myself; but you

Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,

And thus are dearer than the mother I knew

By that infinity with which my wife

Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.

3. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Cinta

Seeing You Through My Poetry


Words are the tone and the simplest way to reach you

Through a twilight in my warm sky

I see the clouds pierce your smile that is bruised in my memory

In this poem, you will find tears and smiles in one glass

If one day my poetry is lost

Find me in the silent voice you can hear

Like happiness and memories

I will keep you in the best place in my heart

So, I don’t need a dot to love you

To me, you are like Greece, an old city that doesn’t die

4. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Sekolah

“Reading World Civilizations”


A place of various colors

All kinds of stories, all kinds of love

Fragile and grow in a journey

I theme a lot of knowledge of world civilization

I found friends and made a human connection

Sometimes I find tired and complaining

But it’s all over soon

Alternate with curiosity about the world

I’m sitting somewhere,

But books take me around,

To other places and times

I was invited to turn back time by history

Invited to explore the ins and outs of the earth by geography

I’m still sitting quietly with a book in my hand

He said, read all the pages on me

Find anything you want to know

5. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Alam

“Flamboyant Tree”


Along the road to cliffs and ravines

I see the flamboyant trees are neatly lined up

as if welcoming people who will come

Manyar birds and finches are still competing to be the winner

In my country, in a place as far and lonely as this

You can find peace more than anything

Make people admire, stare, and stay for a long time

At the end of the road, there is a spring

The squeaks like nature’s sound

Flamboyant is a color, a wound healer, a complement to taste

6. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Guru

I Have a Future

Oleh Joanna Fuchs


Thank you, Teacher,

For reaching deep in me

to find all I can be

before I can see it myself.

You never gave up on me.

I have a future

because of you.

7. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Mimpi


Oleh Langston Hughes


Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.


Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

8. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Perpisahan

Waving Goodbye

Oleh Gerald Stern


I wanted to know what it was like before we

had voices and before we had bare fingers and before we

had minds to move us through our actions

and tears to hel ups over our feelings,

so I drove my daughter through the snow to meet her friend

and filled her car with suitcases and hugged her

as an animal would, pressing my forehead against her,

walking in circles, moaning, touching her cheek, 

and turned my head after them as an animal would,

watching helplessly as they drove over the ruts,

her smiling face and her small hand just visible

over the giant pillows and coat hangers

as they made their turn into the empty highway

9. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Kehidupan Remaja


Oleh Jules


I sit here day and night.

Wishing with all my might

That one day, you will see

How much you mean to me

You’re like an angel sent from above

And I want you to trust me with your love

I don’t see you every day

But you’re in my heart anyway

You’re gentle, kind, and sweet.

And I’m praying the next day we meet

You’ll fall in love with me

And then you’ll finally see

What I’ve been feeling all this time

Wishing you were mine.

10. Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Keluarga

A Family Is

Oleh Kate Summers


I sit here day and night.

Wishing with all my might

That one day, you will see

How much you mean to me

You’re like an angel sent from above

And I want you to trust me with your love

I don’t see you every day

But you’re in my heart anyway

You’re gentle, kind, and sweet.

And I’m praying the next day we meet

You’ll fall in love with me

And then you’ll finally see

What I’ve been feeling all this time

Wishing you were mine.

11. Contoh Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Sahabat

“A Time to Talk”

Oleh Robert Frost


When a friend calls to me from the road

And slows his horse to a meaning walk,

I don’t stand still and look around

On all the hills I haven’t hoed,

And shout from where I am, What is it?

No, not as there is a time to talk.

I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,

Blade-end up and five feet tall,

And plod: I go up to the stone wall

For a friendly visit.

12. Contoh Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Ayah

“Life Lessons”

Oleh Joanna Fuchs


You may have thought I didn’t see,

Or that I hadn’t heard,

Life lessons that you taught to me,

But I got every word.


Perhaps you thought I missed it all,

And that we’d grow apart,

But Dad, I picked up everything,

It’s written on my heart.


Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be

The person I am today;

You built a strong foundation

No one can take away.


I’ve grown up with your values,

And I’m very glad I did;

So here’s to you, dear father,

From your forever grateful kid.

13. Contoh Puisi Bahasa Inggris tentang Senja

“A City Sunset”

Oleh T. E. Hume


Alluring, Earth seducing, with high conceits

is the sunset that reigns

at the end of westward streets…

A sudden flaring sky

troubling strangely the passer by

with visions, alien to long streets, of Cytherea

or the smooth flesh of Lady Castlemaine…

A frolic of crimson

is the spreading glory of the sky,

heaven’s jocund maid

flaunting a trailed red robe

along the fretted city roofs

about the time of homeward going crowds

—a vain maid, lingering, loth to go…
