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,

The Last Poem Of Rizal

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

To The Philippines

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,

To The Philippine Youth

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

My Retreat

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

My Last Thought

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

Education Gives Luster To Motherland

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

First Inspiration

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

A Poem That Has No Title

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.


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