IN FLIGHT (Poem 13)

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Sing to me!
O! Southwest and Northwest winds!
Sing your immortal soothing tunes
Inherited from Kosmos’ music.
Do enliven me
Keep me in tracks
O’ sober moods.

Blow strong your concert horns!
I shall gain strength from them
To fly high,

Fly high!

Higher than Tibet’s unequalled heights.
Such that
The vista
Of my waiting heavens
Are to my eyes

[Writ. 25 Aug.1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
