Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Across the Rio Grande Cagayan from Tuguegarao’s hide
Is Solana town ‘tis home to many kins of mine

There was I and brothers brought to summer holidays
Crossing the river by ferry as bridge there was none

There we played with carabaos, sheeps, and goats
Accompanied beloved Inggo who was pastor to them
With engrossed care we bathed them wonderful pets
Feeling at one with them we are truly blessed

Immersing in livestocks I grew to love them creatures
Built empathy along as I beloved more pets

Solana now is home to ancient pedigree of man
Whose bones fit half a million years to measure

Such knowledge thus to blend with sweet memories
Of my short but lovable stays in ol’ Solana town
