Berso sa Metro


 

Last Sunday, I was riding the LRT2 when I noticed “Berso sa Metro”  postings inside the train.  It been a while since the last time I rode the train and  so I miss reading poems while killing time. I am sharing one of my favorite poems posted there.

originally in Spanish

Humingi ka ng sampaguita
‘di kita binigyan.
Dahil nang puputulin ko na sa mga sanga’y
nanginig ang aking mga kamay
at ang dibdib ko’y nanikip dahil sa awa.

Ayokong magdusa ang mga bulaklak na iyan,
gaya ng pagdurusa ng puso kong malayo sa iyo;
ayokong sa sandaling ito’y hawakan ng aking mga kamay,
iya’y malanta at mamatay.

Jose Palma (1876-1903)

I would like to write more but Kaye (my seatmate in office) is disturbing me. hehe.

Until then.🙂
