Maudin daytoy
Nga surat ken sarita.
Leppas ti daniw.

This is the last
Writing and word.
The end of poem.

Lawag

Ana ti lawag,
No awan ti nasipnget?
Awan ken awan.

Light

What is light,
Without the darkness?
Nothing ang nothing.

A mountain, divided
The earth where it’s from or
The refuge in the sky

Early morning’s gold
The fruit of tears

Ken

Apoy ken danum.
Agsipnget ken parbangon.
Wen, sika ken siak.

Fire and water.
Dusk and dawn.
Yes, you and me.

Words, measure,
and meanings.
I ran out of.
