Natonin's Wonder - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
Natonin, land of my great forebears,
cradles the birth of my own precious life
upon its majestic mountain that bears
witnessed to my childhood's delight.
A land entwined with nature's wonder
with its great high mountain's serenity
overlooking with all might and grandeur
its verdant forest full of nature's beauty.
Though its roads are so l stiff and muddy
Its a wonder to behold as you travel across
with the delight of the fresh air's melody
lurking with coolness to keep you so frost.
Over and over again, i will come to behold
this land of my great childhood's footprints
that even up to now still lingers as I hold
the memories printed with everlasting tints.
No other land is like this abode of my birth
So precious and unparalleled by any wealth
even by the grandeur of diamond's flirt
for there's no place like home as everybody felt.
I wish someday, I'll come to serve for its best
In my own little way, to hail my land of birth
but even if destiny may not permit this quest
I pray upon God to bless this part of earth.
Natonin, you're a jewel blessed with rich culture
as a people proud and free with their ingenuity
as a people embroidered with honor and valor
to stand united for your freedom and posterity.
