Gurindam Sayang MelayuSayang Melayu berlemah-lembut,Hingga kepalanya ditarik rambut.Sayang Melayu gemar beralah,Menuntut haknya dikata salah. Sayang Melayu terlalu bersopan,Walau dicerca masih bertahan.Sayang Melayu berpecah-belah,Siapapun tidak mahu beralah.Sayang Melayu masih telagah,Siapakah hebat, siapakah gah.Sayang Melayu keutamaan bangsa,Walaupun politik berlainan pangsa.Sayang Melayu harus diterjemah,Sebelum haknya habis dijamah.Disember 2014Bukit Tambun, Pulau Pinang.©Ibnu Din Assingkiri
Sayang Melayu sayang pemimpin;Pemimpin mencabul, dia beralah;Biar mati anak, jangan mati adat katanya;Sanggup diperhamba dengan beradat.September 2015Bukit Semanggol, Perak@Anak Din Jeronggos
One of thegreat Malaya. To quote Syed Husin Ali, "Usman is popularly considered, and most justifiably too, as perhaps the best poet in the Malay language. Most important, he is accepted without question as a people’s poet. Writing since 1955, Usman did not produce a very large corpus of poetry, only about 200 of them. But the man, his personality, his poetry and his ideas have a much deeper and wider influence than that number would suggest. Much of his poems are simple, clear, often romantic, and just beautiful. He is a master at weaving words into striking phrases, sentences and verses that are of exceptional classical beauty and sometimes appear to be nostalgic and even escapist."
