Santacruzan, Reyna Elena
is the daughter of the town mayor
who is running for
May 14 Philippine election
if he wins
he will give away free beer
for one month plus the
hand of his "lovely" son
turned daughter
In May my favorite poem
The Rhodora
by Ralp Waldo Emerson
"In May, when sea-winds pierced our solitudes
I found the fresh Rhodora in the woods
Spreading its leafless blooms in a damp nook
To please the desert and the sluggish brook.
The purple petals, fallen in the pool
Made the black water with their beauty gay;
Here might the red-bird come his plumes to cool
And court the flower that cheapens his array.
Rhodora! if the sages ask thee why
This charm is wasted on the earth and sky,
Tell them dear, that if eyes were made for seeing,
Then Beauty is its own excuse for being:
Why thou wert there, o rival of the rose!
I never thought to ask, I never knew:
But, in my simple ignorance, suppose
The self-same Power that brought me there brought you.

May and soon
follows June.

Pinay wishing her name is Rhodora Maria von Alemania
