On the Mountain (Kalinga)
precolonial period
1. I climb the terraced mountain,
With the fields of rice on every
And far away to south and west
Lie the hills of Ifugao land.

2. Beyond the hills and wood-lands
Far away the holy mountains stand.
I wonder what is waiting there
In that distant Ifugao land.
