Florante at Laura: Sa Babasa Nito

Salamat sa iyo, O nnasang irog,
kung halagahan mo itong aking pagod,
ang tula ma'y bukal ng abit na kapos,
pakikinabangan ng ibig tumarok.

Kung sa bigalng tingi'y bubot at masaklap
palibhasa'y hilaw at mura ang balat,
ngunit kung namnamin ang sa lamang lasap
masasarapan din ang babasang pantas.
