An Ode to Lukban Highlands



Lukban Highlands-Sonnet ¯


United in the place we chose to live -

Kamay ni Hesus, ever so protective,

Banahaw, calm volcano, yet effective:

A coolness just Lucban has us to give...


No house unblessed, no soul is left alone

Have all connected by a 'Book of Faces' -

In chats and meetings, friendly in all cases

Good houses, always known as someone's own...


Had started with a few, now many more,

Let's meet and clear whatever is to trace

And every year enjoying Christmas' grace...


Nice solidarity be our core:

Dear friends and neighbors, let's embrace this place!

So lovely homes, so truly to adore...
