Contoh Narrative Text : Legenda Pesut Mahakam

A long time ago, there was a village in East Kalimantan. The village was near the Mahakam River. The villagers always worked hard. Although they were poor, they were very happy. They also helped each other.

In the village, there was a rich family. The head of the family was Pak Pesut. Everybody knew Pak Pesut. He was known not because of his wealth, but because his stinginess. He did not like to help others. His family always ignored people. That’s why Pak Pesut’s family always lived alone and never mingled with others.

It was a very long dry season. All the rice fields could not get water properly. The villagers could not harvest the rice.

Therefore, all villagers were planning to leave their village and find other place to stay. Then they sent some young men to look for a place that had enough water for their rice fields.

After several weeks looked for a new place, finally those young men arrived. They brought good news. There was a waterfall and it was enough to water their rice fields. Later, all the villagers rushed to the new place. Some villagers went to Pak Pesut’s house to inform about the waterfall. Although Pak Pesut was stingy, the villagers did not hate him.

“I’m not going with you! I will stay here. I have enough rice for my family.

We will survive!” said Pak Pesut arrogantly.

The villagers knew it was useless to ask Pak Pesut to join them. So, they all left him and his family alone in the village. When they arrived at the new place, they all were very happy. They had enough water from the waterfall.

In the mean time, Pak Pesut and his family were beginning to worry. Their rice slowly was gone. Soon they would not have enough rice to eat.

It was in the morning when Pak Pesut’s wife was cooking their last portion of rice. Suddenly, someone knocked the door. A beggar came to his house.

“Go out! I don’t have enough rice,” said Pak Pesut. He was lying.

“Please mercy me. I’m so hungry. Give me a little rice please,” asked the beggar.

Pak Pesut immediately asked his family to eat the rice. He was worried the beggar would enter his house and stole the rice.

“But the rice is still in the cooking pot. Mother is still cooking it. If we eat the rice, it will be very hot,” said his son.

“I don’t care! If you all don’t eat now, you will never eat again,” said Pak Pesut.

Later, Pak Pesut and his family ate the rice. It was very hot. They needed water to drink. They rushed to Mahakam River. It was so hot that they finally jumped to the river.

The beggar saw the incident. He then prayed to God. Amazingly, Pak Pesut family slowly changed into fish. The fish looked like dolphin. Since then, everybody named the fish as Pesut fish. ***

Terjemahan Contoh Narrative Text “Legenda Pesut Mahakam”

Dulu, ada sebuah desa di Kalimantan Timur. Desa itu berada di dekat Sungai Mahakam. Penduduk desa selalu bekerja keras. Meski mereka miskin, mereka sangat senang. Mereka juga saling membantu.

Di desa, ada keluarga kaya. Kepala keluarga adalah Pak Pesut. Semua orang kenal Pak Pesut. Dia dikenal bukan karena kekayaannya, tapi karena kekikirannya. Dia tidak suka membantu orang lain. Keluarganya selalu mengabaikan orang. Makanya keluarga Pak Pesut selalu hidup sendiri dan tidak bercampur dengan orang lain.

Itu adalah musim kemarau yang sangat panjang. Semua sawah tidak bisa mendapatkan air dengan benar. Penduduk desa tidak bisa memanen padi.

Oleh karena itu, semua penduduk desa berencana untuk meninggalkan desa mereka dan mencari tempat lain untuk tinggal. Kemudian mereka mengirim beberapa pemuda untuk mencari tempat yang memiliki cukup air untuk sawah mereka.

Setelah beberapa minggu mencari tempat baru, akhirnya para pemuda tersebut tiba. Mereka membawa kabar baik. Ada air terjun dan sudah cukup untuk menyirami sawah mereka. Kemudian, semua penduduk desa bergegas ke tempat baru. Beberapa penduduk desa mendatangi rumah Pak Pesut untuk menginformasikan tentang air terjun tersebut. Meski Pak Pesut pelit, penduduk desa tidak membencinya.

“Aku tidak mau bersamamu! Saya akan tinggal disini Saya punya cukup nasi untuk keluarga saya.

Kita akan selamat! “Kata Pak Pesut sombong.

Penduduk desa tahu bahwa tidak ada gunanya meminta Pak Pesut untuk bergabung dengan mereka. Jadi, mereka semua meninggalkannya dan keluarganya sendiri di desa. Ketika mereka sampai di tempat baru, mereka semua sangat bahagia. Mereka memiliki cukup air dari air terjun.

Sementara itu, Pak Pesut dan keluarganya mulai khawatir. Nasi mereka perlahan hilang. Segera mereka tidak punya cukup nasi untuk dimakan.

Pagi harinya ketika istri Pak Pesut sedang memasak nasi terakhir mereka. Tiba-tiba, seseorang mengetuk pintu. Seorang pengemis datang ke rumahnya.

“Keluar! Saya tidak punya cukup nasi, “kata Pak Pesut. Dia berbohong.

“Mohon ampuni aku. Aku sangat lapar. Beri aku sedikit nasi, “tanya si pengemis.

Pak Pesut segera meminta keluarganya untuk makan nasi. Ia khawatir si pengemis akan masuk ke rumahnya dan mencuri nasi.

“Tapi nasi masih di panci masak. Ibu masih memasaknya. Kalau kita makan nasi, akan sangat panas, “kata anaknya.

“Saya tidak peduli! Jika kalian semua tidak makan sekarang, Anda tidak akan pernah makan lagi, “kata Pak Pesut.

Kemudian, Pak Pesut dan keluarganya makan nasi. Itu sangat panas. Mereka membutuhkan air untuk diminum. Mereka bergegas ke Sungai Mahakam. Panas sekali sehingga akhirnya mereka melompat ke sungai.

Pengemis itu melihat kejadian itu. Dia kemudian berdoa kepada Tuhan. Hebatnya, keluarga Pak Pesut perlahan berubah menjadi ikan. Ikan itu tampak seperti lumba-lumba. Sejak saat itu, semua orang menamai ikan tersebut sebagai ikan Pesut. ***
