Mount Mayon

Mount Mayon

by Ramon P. Orticio

Standing queenly at the edge of the sea
Greeting everyone in perfect majesty
Huge and gigantic so pure and beautiful
A lovely creation for us all

Slopes gently bent on every side
A faultless symmetry none can hide
Matchless in ways and charm
So dear a lady smiles with warmth

Morning glances cast on every window
Over the rooftops flowers watch aglow
A sublime sight at the close of day
And at dusk she fades to pray

Far be it from me that I should forget
Such ethos in splendor so divine
For either sorrow, pang or pain
Winnows precious memories in vain
