Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago



In November 2000 and again from ‘01 till ‘02

Did I visit and make home of southern California

Amazed at the prosperity and near-perfected planning

Did I sing along many times ‘California Dreaming’


Making rounds of over fifty of its cities big and small

From Los Angeles and eastern coasts to Nevada’s borders

And downwards to San Diego couples of times spent

Visiting the border to Mexico viewable from the state


So did I come to love someone too

A noble lady from San Bernardino clue

Who treasured me so much she made me speak

Before university students eager for Light


Lake Mead, wild boar hunting, San Pedro tour

Huntington offshore speed boating & fishing too

Sta Monica tour with beers, swims & slot machines

Venice cooling by the coast & buyin’ crafts along

Partying with family circle & grassroots workers

Drinking tequila and Mexican beers to company


And when the opportune moment came

I did grab grassroots work via church work

Counsel & listen to young adults and singles

And making rounds of seminars in diverse parishes


Residing in Ramona’s apartments with dad & sibs

On weekends to party and visit Ontario Mills sometimes

A few times post-party to star gaze for shooting stars

Do gym work right inside our home village


California beaming is what I made of it

The warm peoples of the state to stay in my bosom

A second home truly it was beyond dreaming
