Treasure Island

Edgardo Tugade

(Feb.6,1964 / Manila)

Ang para sa kanya (For him)


Ito lang ang hinihintay niya:
kung ano ang para sa kanya.
Ang dami nang dumating at nawala
pero lahat ay napasaiba.

Hindi na siya naiinggit pa.
Isa na lamang ang tanong niya:
Siya ba ay dapat maghintay pa
o mabuting magpaalam na?

(by edgardo s. tugade,24 Aug 08)

Translation:

For him

He waits for only this:
for what is meant for him.
So many have come and gone
which went to other people.

He is no longer envious.
He only wishes to ask:
Should he wait any longer
or should he take his leave?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
