The Best Dugong Poems
I sat by a moonlit window last night
As sleep did not come- elusive as the Dugong-
My eyes but portal gazing wide into a deep vast sea.
The songbirds were hushed except for the nightjars and owls.
A dreary blackness was unrolled across the sky,
And moonbeams brimmed over into the room.
My mind set adrift to gloom and droll dreams
In those wee hours of morn. I spoke to ancestors
(if only in my mind) for they lived in simpler and perhaps wiser times.
I thought how I envied them in a way,
Though not really, as their bones lie dusty in
Rustic vessels, traveling further back with each passing day.
Their lips sealed mum, as still as the stars, and cold as winter's teeth,
Yet resting above in glory cradles, numb to the tangles that
Plague this old and somber world.
I wondered what they would think of the present day,
Which oft embraces adverse and complex things,
That would perplex the keen-witted, scholars of yesteryear,
And make the grave of Einstein sway.
If those dear, timeworn relics traversed from
Chivalrous and austere ages into the rages of this world,
Where knowledge weaves through webs of microchip swirls.
And people sail into streams of mouse-clicking dreams...
Could you then, oh sweet vestiges of ancient yellow bones,
Slumber on in quiet, mellow solace beneath your
Inscripted bloodstones, and romance the
Advancement of present times?
Would you imagine these machines as
Sleek schooners slicing through the midnight blue,
Chartering primitive lands? Or rather dreadnaughts
Waiting to wager warfare against the inculpable innocence of
Youth, or the ignorance of man? Would you quiver and quake
at the malice of mankind and perhaps find a better road to take?
I wonder now, as I sit with the moon so bright, and listen to
the stillness quietly hushing this sultry, sleepless night.

Ihanda ang sarili sa Banal na Hapunan,
Ang pagdalo sa pagsamba ay pagtalagahan;
Itaguyod ang ganap na pagbabagong buhay,
Lubos na isulong ang ikapagtatagumpay.
Tumulong tayo sa gawang pagpapalaganap,
Huwag magsasawang mag-anyaya at maghanap;
Akayin ang tao sa mga dako ng misyon,
Itanyag natin ang pangalan ng Panginoon.
Makipagkaisa tayong lahat sa pagsunod,
Huwag tayong manghihinawa kahit mapagod;
Maging maalab sa kasiglahang espiritwal,
Pagpapalain ang sa Diyos ay nagpapagal.
Sasalo tayo sa dulang ng bugtong na Anak,
Upang kupkupin at huwag tayong mapahamak;
Kakain tayo ng tinapay na s'yang katawan,
Iinom ng ubas na dugong kapatawaran.
Alalahanin nga ang kamatayan ni Cristo,
Na dahil sa Iglesia ay ililigtas tayo;
Tinubos tayo sa ating mga kasalanan,
Ihanda ang sarili sa Banal na Hapunan.
