MANINAP YA ING POETA

(King Kakilala kung Paldas)

(Nota: Mumunang atlung estropa kareng labing-apat)

Tampalasan meka keni
bakeng yakdak ining pluma
Kaniang lupa mung malagu, penagurian dang sultana….
Lumapit ka, malagua mu, bamung akit ing kaplas na
Ning sugat kung nanaknak mu king pusu kung daraya pa.
Ali raka, eka kikiak, ding gamat mu iduang mu la;
Emaliari…! Mamali ku..! Camuan daka anga banua.
Mekeni..! Ali..! Lisia ka ken, maninap ya ing poeta…!!

Ing bangke nang malalaso
ning taguimpan kung tinakas
Pilit nakung lilingasuan kening tintunan kung daklat,
Bisa nakung magtahimik, manglap naku king aliguat
Ning kalmang mapanialit king kabiguan mibalangkas,
Eku buri ing laue ra ding anino pauang paldas….
Lakuan yuku, tatakut ku, at ena ku bisang marap,
Kaniang timan yung pikatsa makasangap kung kamandag.

Lasip…! Ikit muna ngeni
ing pasari na’t lelangan
NING MATBUD MUNG PAMANIAMBA KING LARAUAN NING KASIRAN?
Timpaling me’t pindakurak ing mapanirug kung kanuan,
At ngening misalbag niamu king kalma nang masisintang,
Tajimik ka’t e bubulad, manimutla at gagalgal….
Marajil sisisian muna makatakut mung depatan;
Mataloti..! Maili kumu king aske mung anti kanian…!

—Sampaguita.
