# # Found in Translation

A song I loved

since I was a child

I never really

understood it

Till I had lived

and found the words

to translate it.

The song referred to above is titled 'Kahibulungan'
an anomymous love song which I translated into English in my poem 'Wonderment'

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
