Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago



Cobblestones all over the graceful ancient city

Vigan transports you back in time to Hispania

Stone houses combining Antillean & local builds

Calesas to take you around as carousing traveler

Luna & Crisologo houses lead in museum fame

Basi bagoong vinegar & delicacies for cuisine delights

Abel blankets & textiles from cottage foundries

Clay tablets pottery jars kilned and bazaar sold


Thus came my opportune time to be transported

Came April to May of 2006 a-cruisin’ Ilocos region

Training my project personnel in tours delights

Did I come to visit Vigan on perfect sunny days


Never failing too to amends with wild game pets

My team strutted like orbs the zoo Baluarte

Pony to ride around and ostrich to snapshot

Chimpanzee to clown a bit and tame tigers to squaw


I could only wish that two centuries back

Vigan was much like it is today

Where fun and business blend to shrine the soul

With experience worth sharing to future kids


[Philippines, 15 April 2011]
