IN FLIGHT (Poem 9)

Earth, planet, East

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Mighty Rio Grande de Cagayan
Lush Laguna de Bay
Fertile Sierra Madre.
And the whole of
The Pearl of the Orient
In your undying effulgence.

I shall fly
Upon the planet’s entirety.
‘Tis my home:
Planet Earth!

[Writ. 23 Aug. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
