Sa Babasa Nito


Salamat sa iyo, ó nánasang írog,
cong halagahán mo itóng aquing pagod,
ang tulâ ma,i, bucál nang bait na capós,
paquiquinaban~gan nang ibig tumaróc.
Cong sa bigláng tin~gi,i, bubót at masacláp
palibhasa,i, hilao at mura ang balát
ngunit cung namnamín ang sa lamáng lasáp
masasarapán din ang babasang pantás.
Di co hinihin~ging pacamahalín mo,
tauana,t, dustaín ang abáng tulâ co
gauin ang ibigui,t, alpa,i, na sa iyó
ay houag mo lamang baguhin ang verso.
Cong sa pagbasa mo,i, may tulang malabo
bago mo hatulang catcatin at licô
pasuriin muna ang luasa,t, hulô
at maquiquilalang malinao at uastô.
Ang may tandang letra alin mang talata
dimo mauatasa,t, malalim na uicà
ang mata,i, itin~gin sa dacong ibabâ
boong cahuluga,i, mapag uunauà.
Hangán dito acó ó nánasang pantás,
sa cay Sigesmundo,i, houag ding mátulad
sa gayóng catamis uicang masasaráp
ay sa cababago nang tula,i, umalat.
(Sa cursiva o bastardilla)

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
