Sagada Escapades - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
Travel account at sagada,
Mountain province, Philippines
dti, tabuk, kalinga
S-agada, place of cool green mountain
entwined upon verdant pines scenery
where men communed without refrain
to nature's tapestry of great beauties.
A look upon her high majestic mountains
kissed by great white clouds of glee
reminds me of God's great fountains
of creations for all mankind to see.
G-entle are the people of this land of pines
as they humbly served us with their coffee
and gave us their gayonan so truly fine
when we visited one of friend's family.
A-bove the towering peaks of singing pines
I felt the eloquence of the dancing breeze
as coldness cover all over my hair line,
as my breath emits smokes that freeze.
D-esire to live in this place still linger
deep inside in my heart till forever
as I behold the wilderness grandeur
echoing with waves of verdant color.
A place so loved by every adventurists
and even an abode of many tourists
for it has a beauty so truly full of grace
with people's charm that can amaze.
Written during our side trip after attending
brother Sammy Muling's wake
