Rehiyunal

Duta, Bala

Nagauluanggid ang duag,
ang kadakuon,
indi palareho;
may magagmay,
may dalagko.
May sobra,
may ginakulang.

Apang,

kaangay sang prinsipyo,
Haksa kag angkona,
Kabuhi ang kabaylo.


Lupa, Bala*

Magkahawig ang kulay,
ang sukat,
hindi magkatulad;
may maliit
may malaki.
May labis-labis,
may kinakapos.

Ngunit,

kapara ng panindigan
yapusin at angkinin
buhay ang kapalit.
