Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

O! Time!

What art thou whence gone

Art thou into the mortuaries

Apoplexied asphyxiated amputated

Moves thee no longer in the halls

Where two souls ought be-toke

Their selves twixt binds of Eros’ rope

And ‘twere none a-rope but gallows

Of death before grown and born is

The love before them love lost

Unenchanted a-cursed a-gruelled

O! Time!

Thou wert a cadaver for Fate!

[Writ. C. Aug. 91, University of the Philippines Manila]

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Tell me O! morning Sun, tell me
What destiny has providenced for every man?
What meaning too behind the arching mills
Of fate whose noble architect humans are?
What more fate in store?
What more treks to traverse?
What further joys to delight in?
What further sorrows to bear?

When knocks again Eros upon my heart
Is this the ultimate hour for the waiting
For her the lovely woman
Foretold a myriad times in dreams?
Foretold too by well-meaning seers?
She, the sporter of the long flowing hair
A-flashed her sight is beneath my mental screens?
She a wondrous damsel though in pains
Conceiver of my first born scion?

So let it be O! Sun! So be it
I wait no more for this foretold of old
Fulfilled shall be my being in her
Fulfilled more as mount of Light I am
With life a-nurtured as will
She be with me.

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago 

Indeed O! sweetest lady

Sweeter still than honey and wine

Whom Dionysos frenzies for delightfully

With whom all men are enthralled by

You gorgeous sight

You are the soothing wave that massages

My tired heart, tired in searching

For you and no one but you

Come forth!

Bring our foreshadowed fusion

To its marvelous close!

[Writ. 27 May 1991, Cubao, Quezon City, M.Manila]
