Dahon Sa Gabi - Poem by Carmie Ortego

Apan unsa man ang dahon sa gabi
nga kanunay mutugot
nga mudalin-as ang lusok sa uwan
tungod nga dili kini makuptan?

Taro Leaf
(Carmie Ortego)
Everyone longs for love’s tense joys and red delights.
-Jane Kenyon, Thinking of Madame Bovary

But what of the taro leaf
That must always let
The raindrop slide
Because it cannot be held?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Nahidlaw ang tanan sa mga hugot nga kalipay ug puwang kangaya sa gugma.
-Jane Kenyon
