The Rural Maid
By Fernando M. Maramag
Thy glance, sweet maid, when first
we met,
Had left a heart that aches for thee,
I feel the pain of fond regret—
Thy heart, perchance, is not for me.

We parted: though we met no


more,
My dreams are dreams of thee, fair
maid; Forgive these words that love
I think of thee, my thoughts implore impart,
The hours my lips on thine are laid. And pleading, bare the poet’s
breast;
And if a rose with thorns thou art,
Yet on my breast that rose may 16

City, Dion Michael Fernandez has both a Bachelor’s
Degree in English and Literature and a Master’s Degree in
Language Education at Saint Louis University, where he was

urban folklore, his literary style reflects an eccentric
combination of fact, fantasy, Gothicism and cosmopolitan
modernism; in fact, a number of his works contain subliminal
messages.

Marapait: For the Bitter and the Sweet
An Excerpt
Marapait is the local term for the wild sunflowers growing like grass
here in Baguio City -- common and abundant. How it got its name is
because of its bitter-tasting leaves. Mara is an Ilocano term for
"parang" (like, similar to) while pait, as we know it in Filipino means
bitter.

But these Marapait are more than just an apple to the eye. For a
Baguio local like Manong Larry, the mere sight of it brings him back
to his childhood, to the simple pleasures in life and to the Baguio he
had known before.

Literature brings back 'relics‘
An Excerpt
The village dump was our poetry and our history.

We took it home with us by any vehicle, bringing back into the village, the
things the village had used and thrown away.

Probably, the best way for us to keep our treasures which, always depict
our rich culture, is to deem just how helpful literature is I our lives. Yes, it's
maybe seldom useful, but always memorable.

I remember lola's nuang and her stories; I regret her yet. I regret her more
whenever I hear elderly stories and chants during mourning nights
