Pag-Ibig Sa Bayan

Pag-ibig sa bayan
huwag mo lang isigaw
patunayan mo rin
sa pagpapaunlad ng iyong kultura
yaman at galing.

Iyong tandaan
ikaw ang katawan ng bayan
lahat ng papuri
at pintas sa iyo
ay siya ring papuri
at pintas
sa iyong bayan.

Pag-ibig sa bayan
nawa'y huwag mong limutin
bagkus
gawin mong gabay
sa pagpapaunlad ng iyong sarili.

Good poem... Thnks for sharing..........
Emotionally powerful poem. Enjoyed the flow and rhyming too. thanks for sharing such a beautiful poem. 'The shower-sodden earth, the earth-colored streams, They breathe on me awake, and moan to me in dreams, And yonder ivy fondling the broke castle-wall, It pulls upon my heart till the wild tears fall.'...is so nice.
The emotions so well portrayed by the rhythm and rhyme of this beautiful song/poem.
Only the Irish have that lilt down to an art & science..... They can take the most mundane or bleak of circumstances, and weave it into lovely, excellent poetry! Thank you, Ms. Guiney for this!
A sad poem nicely executed.
