THESE LOVELY THINGS

THESE LOVELY THINGS

JOSE LA. VILLA TIERRA

These  things are lovely,and God made them so;

These little white sampaguitas wet with dew;

The graceful sway of grass,folk-dancing on the lea;

The green of narra leaves;the blue of sky  and sea;

The lacy waterfalls and rainbows in the sun;

The Master’s canvas in the west when day is done;

My humble nipa hut beneath the swaying palms

Listening to the breezes lilting pagan psalms;

The moonbeams on the bay;each little bird that sing;

Dalagas on the lane;the color summer brings…

These things are lovely,and God made them so,

And place them in my country-row on row.

I’m glad I’m too poor to leave my shore

And miss this loveliness outside my cottage door.
