    I am using my present email address but I was advised to use instead the one that used in 2010 when I logged it to PoemHunter.com. The problem is, I do not remember anymore the password that I used then. Could anyone from PoemHunter help me on this? I want to add more poems to my collection here.

Best Poem of Nicanor P. Tiosen

Soon I'Ll Hear The Trumpet Call!

Once, I tried to climb a mountain
Hurrying to explore the top;
But vines and crags slowed my ascent
And so I reached just half-way up.

Far out to the open sea I sailed
Questing for a verdant field;
Alas! A gust of wind drove fast
Both my boat and hope were crushed!

Who can ignore the valley's lure?
Songbirds, butterflies dancing galore;
Deep in reverie - too late to mourn,
I got entangled midst thickets and thorns!

Heavenward, the journey is trial-fraught
As man is wont to find;
If one should keep on going though -
Reward cannot...

Read the full of Soon I'Ll Hear The Trumpet Call!
