The Lily Leaf... - Poem by Rey Sanidad
Walkin once along the riverbank...
I saw a child dreaming at the window.
I fell in love not for her elaborate house
On the banks of Pasig River.
But for a Lily leaf she has let fall
Into the water.
I am in love with the east breeze.
Not that she brings the scent of the flowering
of mangoes on Eastern Hill;
But that she has drifted the Lily leaf
into the riverbank.
I am in love with the Lily leaf.
Not that she speaks of green spring
Coming to us again;
But that the dreaming girl
Pricked there a name with her embroidery needle,
And the name is mine.
