Reflection by the Fountain

Dr Abe V Rotor
Living with Nature School on Blog
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid (People's School on Air) with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday

The Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas, Manila,
on its quadri-centennial celebration (1611-2011)


It's a clear day, any ordinary day,
it's a Monday or a Friday;
it's time for writing, reading,

memorizing or just dreaming.

It's a place to be under the sun,
to catch the breeze before it's gone;
it's a birthplace of heroes, martyrs,
a place of laughter and tears.

It's time of the young in their hour,
like fruit and seed in their flower;
the old are done with their prime,
the essence of life and time.

And I, I see again
myself here
as I had seen year after year,
on this mirror that turns pain
into a great, glorious fountain. ~
