tourism ***** JOSE RIZAL BIRTH HOME REVISITED


Calamba Laguna
April 2001

I am here
national hero's home
I am strolling inside and out
Spanish
architectural influence
the art of our
hero's immortal foe
irony but facts

my feet rooted near the lips
of his wishing well
near Zoro type
kalisa garage

i am wishing
i would be a modern hero
a hero of my own
conquering my slave self
against imperial own weaknesses

it is impossible to be true
i have no piso bill
to be thrown in Rizal's
legendary well

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
