Prayer of a Student
-Trinidad SubidoTo learn, dear Lord, about theseem’rald leaves,These tender petalled blossoms lavedin dewFrom where they come, and how and whythey lived;Or yet to know why ocean waters lashTheir atomed selves against thegranite rocksThat senseless lie along the shores;to knowWhy rainbows filing their ribbonedsouls athwartThe eastern skies when sunrays flickthe west;Why lightning furies rage when storm-wind stillThe thunder that echoes through thedark;To learn about the earth, about themoon,The sun and the lesser stars andother worldsThat span through that cerulescentfirmament;To learn great facts about littlethingsAnd then while knowing these, not tounlearn-Never, O God to unlearn these child-learned truthThat, Thou art in reality the source,The Why, the How, the Wherefore ofall things.
 The Sea
-Natividad Marquez
Why does the sea laugh,mother,As it glints through the beamof the sun?It is thinking of the joys, mychild That it wishes everyoneWhy does the sea sob so,mother,As it breaks on a rockyshore?It recalls the sorrows of theworldAnd weeps forevermoreWhy does the sea sopeaceful, mother,As if it were fast asleep?It would give our tired heartdearest child The comfort of the deep.
To a Lost One
-Angela Manala-Gloria
I shall haunt you O my lost one, asthe twilightHaunts a reed-entangled trail,And your dreams will linger strangelywith the musicOf a phantom lover’s tale.
You shall not forget me, for I am pastforgettingI shall come to you againWith the starlight and scent of wildchampacas,And the melody of rain.You shall not forget me, dust will peerinto yourWindow, tragic-eyed and stillAnd unbidden, startle you intoremembranceWith it hand upon the sill.
