Bro. Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

Why dream of retiring at age 60 or 65?

Has life not gloriously revealed

The exquisite beauty within you

That shines all the more

With each day of doing?

Will retirement not compel you

Into dark dens of nothingness

Push you to the brink

Of cancerous boredom that kills

In every second of its conquest?

 

Continue to share to all fellowmen

The sublime makings of your trade

Be these in simple or intricate form.

 

For Life has endowed you

With blessings aplenty

Since the first day that you saw

The undying Light of the sun.

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

Actions of a kind

And those of others

Ever demand a plethora of decisions

Whether erroneous to some quarters

Or righteous to the rest.

The mind fulfills the thinking

Balanced with the doing

In a majestic rhythm

Of poetry and calculus,

Tempered by Justice

And the quest of the Will,

Astride the vehicle of Wisdom

Fueled by noble Inspiration,

It measures the outcome

Whether least appealing or best.

 

[Writ. 02 June 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
