Poem By Judith Kempis
From the riverside town of Dulag
I carry valuable things and a bag
I brought camera, paper and ballpen
That could be used for documentation.
As the beginning of my journey
First I ride a bus and jeepney
And start travelling around Leyte
Which amaze me from nice views and sea.
In Palo, there is McArthur's statue
Sto. Nino Shrine from late President Ferdinand Marcos
A very huge newly build mall and astrodom
Cathedral, big churches, I stop to pray.
Mountains and ricefields I pass along the way
The green color widens my eyes to see
Cows and carabaos carrying plough
Some farmers planting and some are harvesting.
San Juanico, the world's longest bridge
That connects two island, Samar and Leyte
And the historic place of Basey
The wonderful rock formation of Marabut.
Beautiful and natural resources from Leyte
Peaceful, simple, and clean Tacloban City
Beaches and resorts makes you relax all day
Sea foods, fruits and vegetables makes you healthy and happy.
