! ! ! Timawa


Nakapangalumbaba...

dungaw ni Juan
tila malalim, malayo
malabo...
nasasagkaan
ng pader ng panghihinayang,
ng pag-asam...
ng tamis, ng pait
sa labi at mata'y
banaag ang malalim na pag-iisip!

isip niya'y naglalakbay
bukas...
ngunit walang maapuhap
sa dako ng kanyang pangarap!

yosi'y nauupos na
magkano na nga ba ang isa?
di namalayang nakaipit
sa nakapangalumbabang bisig!

Malamig na ang kape mo,
timawang JUan!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
