Florante at Laura: Kay Celia

Kay Celia

Kung pagsaulan kong basahin sa isip
ang nakaraan araw ng pag-ibig,
may mahahagilap kayang natititik
liban na kay Celian namugad sa dibdib?

Yaong Celiang laging pinanganganibang
baka makalimot sa pag-iibigan,
ang ikinalubog niring kapalaran
sa lubhang malalim na karalitaan.
