The Poet's Version of the Philippine National Anthem


O Glorious Country!
Always have you been so Dainty
With Love and Liberty
Thee do our Skies adore.

Land of the Morning
Pearl of the Orient's calling:
Faith, Joy and Freedom
And our Sins wash ashore.

Amongst the Scents, the Sounds, the Sea
And Air the Fires stalk a-light
The Foreigners glamour at our Wondrous World
And say, 'What a Beautiful Sight! '

The Red of Blood, the Coat of Blue
The Yellow Sun and Stars make up the Right
The KKK, the Great Malay Hero, the Bolo and the Songs
Inspire us to never cease the Fight.

The Love of our Country, freely
Makes our Lives a-shine
Towards our long-sought Prosperity.
The Saints who died for our Love
Of Sovreignity
Left our Greatest Pride and Dignity.
