Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Igorotlandia d’ Cordillera is one whole story yet to tell
For this enthused soul who climbed up those fiery lands
Beginning in Summer 77 in Baguio the summer capital
Onwards to 81 in work visitations of Ifugao
Roll over to work monitors of Kalinga & Apayao
Likewise visiting Ilongots of Quirino their siblings
Till 2000 when I revisited Ifugao on my way to Sagada
There to communicate with the ancestors
And say my own appreciation for Bulol of the astrals

Cordillera is an awesome land like Marlboro country
Growing pines interspersed with undulating mounts
Blended with fjords and a nurturing hospitable people
Home likewise to gold and treasures beneath the mounts

Cordillera is amongst the guardian ranges of Filipinas
Standing tall across hundreds of kilometers to frown
Upon all predatory greedy people and bad folks
Its forests and rivers narrate history like mute beings
Of a mighty people scions of ancient Malayan Mu

Turbulence yet may come a couple of years from now
Yet Cordillera will stand still and tall
Beacon of ancient Mu and future Filipiniana

[Philippines, 22 December 2010]
