Binalaybay para sa Disyembre 08 ni Maragtas S.V. Amante

by Pangga Gen

Panghukray kag hinugyaw
Maragtas S.V. Amante

DOMINUS REGIT ME, et nihil mihi deerit.
(The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want).
(Psalm 23:1)

Panghukray gadilhit sa atay kag langgaw gahaylo
Tigpos hurangos ginhawa gaupos sa kalayo
Araguy mawigit panglonggong sa damgo
Antus sa paghakwat pagbalhas pag-arado

Panigadlum sa manyauk nga dolar dinar opyo ga-ulawhay
Wanhaw san-o pa magbaralik magkiritaay
Bisan duro ang tinaga gabarayluhanay
Kaalwan rogdi rogya rugto gapanumbalay

Pagdumdum paghawat hawat sa mga kahidlaw
Manggad sa kabudlay nausoy sa pag-antus nga kinarbaw
Hala kita maghirupay pahurum sa tuburan kag balanaw
Dinagyang sabyahanay galinagabong sa paghinugyaw.

Laments and feasts
Maragtas S.V. Amante

Shrill laments one’s liver in vinegar brew
Breath life, bear the grief in fortitude
Blend, leave dreams behind, and fears too
Heavy toils, loads coax sweaty muscle plows

Life’s magicians in far away dollar dinar opium lands
Ferment sick spirits longing to travel home, now
Just as words in real time feelings exchange
Strength of spirit sprints in abodes here, there and further

Sweet memories tease away pain of longing
Wealth from toils transform the beastly burdens
Solidarity feasts tire beings in streams and springs
Victorious colors bathe in shrill triumphal sounds.

Si Noy Maragtas S.V. Amante, Ph.D., taga-Pandan. Tana Vice President para sa Administration kag Propesor kang U.P. School of Labor & Industrial Relations (SoLAIR) sa Unibersidad kang Pilipinas sa Diliman, Quezon City.
