the woman and the flower


sa balak ang babaye
mao ang bulak

for a poem the woman
is the flower

sa bulak ang babaye
dili babaye
dili niya kini masabtan
sa iyang pagkabulak

for the flower the woman
is not a woman
it cannot comprehend this
in its flower-nature

sa babaye ang bulak
halad sa iyang kasingkasing
pako sa iyang kalaay
haploy sa iyang aping

to a woman the flower
is an offering to her heart
a wing to her boredom
a caress to her cheek

bulak ang babaye
og ang babaye bulak
mao kana ang hukom
sa balak.

the flower is the woman
and the woman is the flower
that is the judgment of
the poem

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
