Pada Suatu Malam

Nalikanira ing dalu

wong agung mangsah semedi

sirep kang bala wanara

sadaya wus sami guling

nadyan ari sudarsana

wus dangu nggenira guling

Tembang Kinanthi satu ‘pada’ tersebut mengisahkan peristiwa ketika Prabu Ramawijaya bersama adiknya Laksmana Widagda dan seluruh bala tentara kera, sedang membuat pesanggrahan di Swela Giri, untuk menuju Negara Alengka. Pada suatu malam, saat semuanya kelelahan dan terlelap dalam tidur, Prabu Ramawijaya sebagai  pemimpin mereka, justru bangun untuk berdoa, memohon keselamatan bagi seluruh rakyatnya, termasuk juga adik yang dikasihinya.

Once Upon A Night

It was told when Prabu Ramawijaya together with his brother Laksmana Widagda and all the monkey troops, was making a shelter in Suwela Giri in their way to Alengka. One night, when all were tired and slept soundly, Prabu Ramawijaya as their leader, stayed awake and pray, asked for safety for all of his people as well as his brother.
