Jose Rizal Poems

And so it has arrived -- the fatal instant,
the dismal injunction of my cruel fate;
so it has come at last -- the moment, the date,

Farewell, my adored Land, region of the sun caressed,
Pearl of the Orient Sea, our Eden lost,

Warm and beautiful like a houri of yore,
as gracious and as pure as the break of dawn
when darling clouds take on a sapphire tone,

Wise education, vital breath
Inspires an enchanting virtue;
She puts the Country in the lofty seat

Hold high the brow serene,
O youth, where now you stand;
Let the bright sheen
Of your grace be seen,

Beside a spacious beach of fine and delicate sand
and at the foot of a mountain greener than a leaf,

To my Creator I sing
Who did soothe me in my great loss;
To the Merciful and Kind
Who in my troubles gave me repose.

Why falls so rich a spray
of fragrance from the bowers
of the balmy flowers

Land I adore, farewell! thou land of the southern sun's choosing!
Pearl of the Orient seas! our forfeited Garden of Eden!

Tunay ngayong umid yaring dila't puso
Sinta'y umiilag, tuwa'y lumalayo,
Bayan palibhasa'y lupig at sumuko
Sa kapabayaan ng nagturong puno.

Dry leaf that flies at random
till it's seized by a wind from above:
so lives on earth the wanderer,

Sweet the hours in the native country,
where friendly shines the sun above!
Life is the breeze that sweeps the meadows;

IF truly a people dearly love
The tongue to them by Heaven sent,
They'll surely yearn for liberty
Like a bird above in the firmament.

When I recall the days
That saw my childhood of yore
Beside the verdant shore
Of a murmuring lagoon;

For the Motherland in war,
For the Motherland in peace,

Mary, sweet peace and dearest consolation
of suffering mortal: you are the fount whence springs
the current of solicitude that brings

Why have you come to earth,
Child-God, in a poor manger?
Does Fortune find you a stranger

Now mute indeed are tongue and heart:
love shies away, joy stands apart.
Neglected by its leaders and defeated,

If Philomela with harmonious tongue
To blond Apollo, who manifests his face
Behind high hill or overhanging mountain,

They bid me strike the lyre
so long now mute and broken,
but not a note can I waken

Jose Rizal Biography

Dr. José Protasio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896, Bagumbayan), was a Filipino polymath, nationalist and the most prominent advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. He is considered a national hero of the Philippines, and the anniversary of Rizal's death is commemorated as a Philippine holiday called Rizal Day. Rizal's 1896 military trial and execution made him a martyr of the Philippine Revolution. The seventh of eleven children born to a wealthy family in the town of Calamba, Laguna, Rizal attended the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, earning a Bachelor of Arts. He enrolled in Medicine and Philosophy and Letters at the University of Santo Tomas and then traveled alone to Madrid, Spain, where he continued his studies at the Universidad Central de Madrid, earning the degree of Licentiate in Medicine. He attended the University of Paris and earned a second doctorate at the University of Heidelberg. Rizal was a polyglot conversant in at least ten languages. He was a prolific poet, essayist, diarist, correspondent, and novelist whose most famous works were his two novels, Noli me Tangere and El filibusterismo.These are social commentaries on the Philippines that formed the nucleus of literature that inspired dissent among peaceful reformists and spurred the militancy of armed revolutionaries against the Spanish colonial authorities. As a political figure, Jose Rizal was the founder of La Liga Filipina, a civic organization that subsequently gave birth to the Katipunan[8] led by Andrés Bonifacio and Emilio Aguinaldo. He was a proponent of institutional reforms by peaceful means rather than by violent revolution. The general consensus among Rizal scholars, however, attributed his martyred death as the catalyst that precipitated the Philippine Revolution.)

The Best Poem Of Jose Rizal

Goodbye To Leonor

And so it has arrived -- the fatal instant,
the dismal injunction of my cruel fate;
so it has come at last -- the moment, the date,
when I must separate myself from you.

Goodbye, Leonor, goodbye! I take my leave,
leaving behind with you my lover's heart!
Goodbye, Leonor: from here I now depart.
O Melancholy absence! Ah, what pain!

This tells the sadness and heartache Rizal felt when parted ways with Leonor. It is a clear expression of the grief and devastation that accompanies the farewell of a loved one. I notice how much Rizal really loved Leonor. It's a real eye-opened about how love can bring both happiness and heartache.
