Ferdinand L Quintos Poems
Train Ride To Nowhere
The train rolls out slowly from the old terminal bay, rusty wheels reluctantly roll on rails all rickety,
Pangasinan (Sakey A Lugay)
Pan-aasinan nen panaon ya inmuna, ..malaem ed yaman-dayat tan arum ni ‘ra ..ya makana’n tagano na laman da’y lapag ..ya too’d sakop to tan arum ni ya dapag.
A Night On Mt. Olympus
As the gods silently slept On imposing Mt. Olympus, So surreptitiously I crept And awakened goddess Venus.
As I lay lonesome one night in my bed, Somnus on my wearied eyes descended, but when my eyelids were about to meet toward slumber expectedly sweet,
Luisa (Acrostic Poem)
Lying deep in my mind, Unknown to the world, I’ve kept you confined, Soon, tell you, I would
Angel (Acrostic Poem)
Name poem ANGEL
Hibiscus (Acrostic Poem)
Held firm by pin on my dear love’s long hair, Its petals sway with each light gust of air, Beautiful pair in them my eyes behold, Incites true love my heart hardly can hold,
You ask me very frequently measure of my sincerity, hark and I will tell you shortly that you may have serenity.
Perfume (Acrostic Poem)
My name poem PERFUME
Jennifer (Acrostic Poem)
Just as I felt energy Escaping from my body, Newer impetus to live Now you did unto me give.
Belinda (Acrostic Poem)

I Write As I Write
Writing poetry is fast, like chasing the waters the rain has dropped before they reach the drains.

Train Ride To Nowhere
The train rolls out slowly

like the sharp pangs of sadness
cut through the dark recesses,
and reopens all the hurt,
deep in my tormented heart.
The train at last slows ...
