Ing Casalang

Matuling iang tulus ing caiang caianacan—
macabaiutuc
mialunan
qng cadaiat-malatan
labas-labasa’t balic-balican ning aslag ning caugtuan.

Mengalasac no ngan

quing alang patugut a gulisac ning duldul
at caring maplas a tampaling ning bubulus a uran
ala . . . ala nang mitagan
caring bunga ning saculan a timna’ na’t pipagalan

at caring pala, sarul-gamat at piruya nang tatalanan,
ngening ing isip na’t sicanan icua na nang quesiliman,
ing saculan ning paninap babalican ne’t gagambulan
pasibaiu nong tatanam ding limbug a taguimpan
guilid ding mangalalam a paligui ning dine’t capagsisian
a maguing cutcutang tatanguisan na’t pagpaldasan,
sisilipan, caring alac a alducan at copitang pamalbalan

Ing pipiling a lunus -- ia cabud manaquit qng catutuan,

a pasibaiu lang musbung at saguiwa
ring lanat a tangque ning caiang taguimpan
caiabe nang manigapu, a misan ia pang calunusan
ing caladuang linubas na’t delise

quing bie nang mamirapal quing cutcutan

tulus iang tutusuc quing daraiang pilubluban

Genesis 22:2

king bunduk ning Gerizim – makatuklu king Moriah-
karin ya minukyat ban silaba’ neng
anting mabanglung daun
ing anak nang bugtung—
tatangi at pakamalan—
binie na na kaya
o ba’t ngeni, pasibayu neng kukunan?

Wa, kaniting pinandit
nung kitnan ne man
ning malak-malak nang anak
nung bakit dapat na iting gawan,
linubas na na ning mamintung Ibpa
ing anggang kapikakunuan
pablasang balu na
karing maki-matibe kasalpantayanan
malalaso ngan ing anggang kutang;
alang dapat mitas kayagna’ ning pataram
nune ring pakumbabang dalit:
Y Ka mu O’ Diyos, Y Ka kabud ing dapat kung tukyan!

pablasang gagap na
ding maki-dalise pilubluban
yla ring manakit karing pawaga ning Miglalang:--

aliwa mu reng Isaac
ing buri nang tanggapan;
deta mu namang mengalili
karing liku-likung dalan.
ban abitasa rang
ing tupang pelit nang Abraham
‘ya naman ing korderong
mipaku
minaku
king sala ning sikluban

Pamanlipat

mayayaninag ya
karing katas-katawang miyayanib,
karing balang sikdu, kimbe at indayug
da ring miyuyugpungang awakan
ing pami-paitas ruruk
a pagnasan tang puntan

babagsen te ing kaganapan;
aplus-aplusan ing kaselanan
ning alingapngap at nasa--
ning pamanlaut
king mangisnawang gabun

mangulabe ka ta
king galgal ning yatu
balu ta la man ding makasawan
a yuyu ning alun,
ding gaspang da ring batu
king kangatbang pampang,
manalangin kata pa muring
atabnuan te ing ligaya—
kagatpanapunang makawangis
king paraisung miyalunan.

Ding Mitalakad Karing Kubul

Likwan da la ring mamartikulad ding bale rang tuknangan.
Karing pilapil at tarundun-- a angganan ning pisasabyan--
telakad da la ring kubul ning saingsing at katuliran.
Linucluc la’t nginulangul--anti ra mong paglamayan
ing makapase atbu a pilan-pulung banwa rang tenam
king mengabtak a asikan

alang mayumu . . .
daya
ing kinatas a upa ning sabla rang kapagalan

Ding melakwan a pibale-bale
taguimpan lang meguing bula
lugu-lugung tatakbang
payuli king kawakasan

Mengaring pamanuli
ning dinaung-panaun,
ning sikanang inampang,
a mibata king labul ning angin at bulus ning uran,
mipnu mang pag-inakit, mekad,
taganang makanyan, babalik ngan ing sabla
king sepupunan ning gabun a pibatan

Lawan mu la, oh! kakung balayan!
nung makananung tatanggapan de ngeni
ing karelang pangalupig. Payapa la pilubluban
ding ortelanung meguisan na sikanan.
E no bisang gulisak man!

Lawan mu la, oh! kakung balayan
nung makananung adwang gamat,
mitmung tula nong babalik king matris ning gabun
ding anak nang mengapirat a katawan—
busbus a salu keni
buntuk a sinilip ning punglu keta
butul a linual king bitis karin…

Anting angin a sinawa nang lalabul karing biga ning kabengian,
ding telakad dang kubul, mipapayid at tutuklip lang kapagnasan

lastag at mepata katawan
mengalupig katuliran—

makanyan lang mumuli ding anak a bandi at alipan ning asikan
