Giant Bamboo - the biggest grass in the world,
Museum of Natural History, Mt Makiling, Laguna
Kin of the cereals, the pasture grass,
the bamboo stands king of 'em all,
living all through the seasons green,
while its kind surrenders to the fall.
Mystic are its ways, proud it stands,
whisp'ring stories spooky and tall,
music to growing up children
into brave men, seasoned and full.
The world wouldn't be the same without,
men build churches, high rise and all,
their craft and art in their living huts
make the finest behind their wall. ~
