“Kakak, sudah lama kita tidak pergi ke pantai!” kata Peri Novi. “Kau benar, Novi! Aku juga rindu akan udara laut yang menyegarkan,” ujar Peri Dinda mengangguk setuju. “Bagaimana kalau kita pergi minggu ini?” ajak Peri Dinda. “Maaf Kakak, aku harus belajar sihir yang sudah lama ingin kukuasai,” jawab Peri Novi. “Baiklah kalau begitu,” kata Peri Dinda. (“Sister, it’s been a long time since we went to the beach!” says Novi, the Fairy. “You’re right, Novi! I also miss the fresh sea air,” says Dinda. “What about we go there this week?” asks Dinda. “Sorry Sister, I have to study this magic spell I want to master,” says Novi. “Okay then,” answers Dinda.)

Seminggu kemudian, kedua peri itu segera terbang menuju ke pantai. Di tengah jalan, mereka bertemu dengan seekor merpati. Rupanya, itu Poku si merpati pos. “Poku!” sapa Peri Dinda dan Novi. “Dinda, Novi senang sekali bertemu dengan kalian!” kata Poku. “Apakah kau mau ikut kami ke pantai?” tanya Peri Novi. “Aku harus mengantar surat tapi, masih ada waktu cukup lama. Aku ikut!” kata Poku. (A week later, the two fairies fly to the beach. On the way, they meet a pigeon. It’s Poku, the mail pigeon. “Poku!” greet Dinda and Novi. “Dinda, Novi, nice to meet you!” says Poku. “Do you want to come with us to the beach?” asks Novi. “I have to deliver these letters, but I still have time. I’ll come with you!” says Poku.)

 Sesampainya di pantai, Peri Dinda, Novi, dan Poku sangat gembira karena hanya mereka bertiga yang berkunjung ke sana. “Wah, kita bisa bermain sepuasnya!” seru Peri Novi sambil terbang bebas mendekati air. “Horeee!” ujar Poku mengikuti Peri Novi. “Hati-hati!” pesan Peri Dinda melihat tingkah Peri Novi dan Poku. (As they arrive at the beach, Dinda, Novi and Poku are very happy because they are the only ones there. “Wow, we can play whatever we want!” shouts Novi while flying to the water. “Hurray!” says Poku following Novi. “Be careful!” warns Dinda seeing them.)

 “Oh, tidak!” seru Poku tiba-tiba. Rupanya, surat Poku tercebur ke dalam laut! “Bagaimana ini?!” serunya panik. Peri Novi segera mendekati Poku. “Tenang, Poku,” katanya. Peri Novi mengayunkan tongkat ajaibnya dan surat Poku segera muncul dari dalam air laut. Lalu dengan ahli dia bersenandung dan surat Poku yang basah terkena air, kembali kering! (“Oh no!” shouts Poku suddenly. Apparently, Poku’s letters fall into the sea! “What do I do?!” he says panicking. Novi comes to him. “Relax, Poku,” she says. Novi swings her magic wand and Poku’s letters come out from the sea. Then she hums, and Poku’s wet letters become dry!)

Poku sangat gembira. Dia berjanji tidak akan ceroboh lagi, lalu terbang pergi mengantar surat. “Jadi, itu sihir yang kau pelajari?” tanya Peri Dinda. “Iya, Kakak. Banyak peri yang meremehkan sihir itu, tapi ternyata sangat berguna!” kata Peri Novi. “Kau benar, kita tidak boleh meremehkan pengetahuan, bahkan yang sepertinya tak penting, kelak itu akan berguna,” ucap Peri Dinda tersenyum. (Poku is very happy. He promises to be careful next time, and goes to deliver the letters. “So, that’s the magic you learned?” asks Dinda. “Yes, Sister. Many fairies underestimate it, but it’s very useful!” says Novi. “You’re right, we cannot underestimate knowledge, even if it seems unimportant, it will be useful,” says Dinda smiling.)
