tourism ***** JOSE RIZAL BIRTH HOME REVISITED


Calamba Laguna
April 2001

I am here
national hero's home
I am strolling inside and out
Spanish
architectural influence
the art of our
hero's immortal foe
irony but facts

my feet rooted near the lips
of his wishing well
near Zoro type
kalisa garage

i am wishing
i would be a modern hero
a hero of my own
conquering my slave self
against imperial own weaknesses

it is impossible to be true
i have no piso bill
to be thrown in Rizal's
legendary well

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

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