JUVENILES LIBER

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Juveniles’ minds like sheets of papers are
Where learnings get imprinted bit by bit

Query’s who does writ the learnings for the youth
Will such learnings be for yearnings o’truth
Won’t such learnings be for sordid enchainment
In rocks so huge a-trapping one like Prometheus

The challenge lies therefore in making those bits
Mutated scissors they to tear the masks
Beguiled no more will juveniles be set free
Their inner monads smile in infinite glee

Till Light engulfs those sheets of pages full
That each then be a torch of freedom bliss

If I shall have a hand in building the world anew

A city I will build and dedicate for babes & tots

Where they can frolic the day to hearts’ delight

Relish their minds with fantasies of creation

Toyland and chocolate city rolled in one

This wonderland will be a place to baptize

New babes a-born with Universe’s smile in face

Grand place to celebrate birthdays too for them

Who are growing up a bit to tot’s fanfares

Late at day shall theatres turn their lights

To them who’d desire for heroism tales

For Cinderellas & Mulans of the morrows

Yes! Let there be such a city to shine the world

Bursting tots’ laughters like happiest bards

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

O! Star youth of the Rizalandian race!

Truly so lovable and minds quizzical

Begotten as leaders yon echelon of thy gesselschaft

Who are to me so near and made so

By dancing with me together in the great hall

Of academic undertaking: tangoed we

As authentically ordained partners: ordained by fate

To feel and think together in states o’ sobriety

By commands of duty and obligation

For whom my everything my mind and heart

Had been encumbered for as my sole offering

Offering my soul’s betrothed my soul’s pure halo

My person a gift given collateralized

Without me demanding for the basest return

Yet but build they their gesselschaft and self sterlingly.

O! Knights and knightesses of today and tomorrows

How in the world can I besmirch thee all

Of whose countenance are to me endeared with plenitude?

Behold there isn’t one iota of doubt in me

‘Bout your knighthood’s prowess and trade’s wherefores

There at the summit of Cheop’s pyramid

Resides my esteem for thee all:

I shall lift up thy esteem

Towards abodes of gods

‘Twere firmaments

Fade in the dazzling light a-beauty

Of the aeternal Thou

I can no more bethink of reasons

For the begrudged flames in thy hearts

I now the crucified caper before thine eyes

Ne’er meant I to unlock a Pandora’s box

For which findest thy self in unfounded apprehension

Not for my endeared partners ne’er for thou

O! How I hope that grasp thou all so clear

The sincerest meaning behind my swearwords of late

That we ought march as one to champion

The triumphant denouement of our joint deeds

In their unique sense be they simple or compounded.

[Writ. 27 July 91, Univ. of the Philippines Manila]

Welcome, Prometheus!

Descend upon the pillars and corridors of Academia!

Have your merriment and feasts among

The expectant adherents of your holy fire.

Illuminate the residents of Academia with your

Undying light: mana of reason and knowledge.

Awaken us to the flowering consciousness of the knower

As your light fires up the longing lamps of us all.

Remain! Linger on! Let your sacred essence be

Of the inherited Elixir of our triumphant march

          Along Life’s trek!

Happy at last will be Zeus over our sublime fraternity.

Bro. Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

  

What ought I search for further?

In flight what more things to share?

Thanks so much my mind’s so nourished,

Experiences learned. All thoughts

And actions mutually enrich each other.

This truth my growing up had unearthed

From the deep mines of Olympus

As I’ve walked the face of the Earth.

 

I mentored for a half and three years

A thousand apprentices in its span.

How many were my Adepts, assured at least

There are. But I to them was an Adept too

As I am to all fellowmen.

Will I mentor more? Shall I mentor more?

I’d gladly do so for as long as I can.

 

If the aged are to the young their teachers

Likewise if the young are to their elders

Then the rolling of the times approaching

Will ensue smoothly like all thorns were swept off

Along the infinite stretch of road.

 

[Writ. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
