Mayon Volcano and Cagsawa Belfry Ruin

Abe V. Rotor

Mayon Volcano and the ruins of Cagsawa Church Belfry, Albay
The church remains buried with the reamains of the faithful
who sought refuge from a violent
eruption in the 18th century
when the Philippines was then a colony of Spain.

Tranquility reigns on her face, rage in her breast,

If beauty exudes best from a spring of force,
I do not wonder at the shyness of a crest,
And the power of a single rose.
