Syair Awang Goneng

Bertahun merdeka di perantauan,

Segala kenangan tetap di ingatan,

Si Awang Goneng hasil nukilan,

Untuk semua jadi tatapan.

Bertahun-tahun di tanah Inggeris,

Bijak bermadah ilhamnya puitis,

Begitulah kisah seorang penulis,

Pengalaman diratah buku ditulis.

Suka duka tangis dan tawa,

Mok Mek dan Mok Nab semua dia cerita,

Cik Kaleh Teksi Pok Loh Standok juga,

Pok Ku Haji Ambak Serban Besar Bakul dia tak lupa.

Menyingkap kembali apa dirasa,

Sedari kecil ke zaman remaja,

Kerepok lekor rojak Pok Deh dia suka,

Itu dia Si Awang Goneng anak Trengganu kita.


Abang Dody recited this syair during the launch of Awang Goneng’s latest book, ‘A Map of Trengganu’ at the RA Fine Arts Gallery.
