SOMEONE CAME KNOCKING

Someone came knocking (SOMEONE CAME KNOCKING)
At my wee, small door; (AT MY WEEN SMOL DOOR)
Someone came knocking (SOMEONE CAME KNOCKING)
I’m sure-sure-sure; (IM SURE, SURE, SURE)
I listened, I opened, (I LISTENED, I OPENED)
I looked to left and right, (I LOOK TO DA LEF EN RAYT)
But nought there was a-stirring (BUT NO,DER WAS NO STIRRING)
In the still dark night; (IN DA STILL DOORK NAYT)
Only the busy beetle (ONLY DA BISI BITOL)
Tap-tapping in the wall, (TAP-TAPING ONA WOL)
Only from the forest (ONLY FROM DA FOREST)
The screech-owl’s call, (DA SCREECH OWL CALLS)
Only the cricket whistling (ONLY DA CRICKET, WHISLING)
While the dewdrops fall, (WHILE THE DEWDROPS FALL)
So I know not who came knocking (SO I KNOW NOT, WHO KNOCKING)
At all, at all, at all. (AT OL, AT OL, AT OL)

My two-year-old can now recite a poem! This was the poem doting tita, Nanay Dit-Dit teaches all his nieces and nephews. And soon as my Gabriel was a few months old, she was already teaching him the poem above. Gabriel can already sing a few songs, but boy oh boy, listening him recite a poem makes me swell with pride. Thanks to Nanay Dit-Dit and her total devotion to our family's young ones. How lucky will her future children be, learning poetry from her, singing, dancing, oration, you name it. Here are a few pics below so you will see why won't Gabriel learn many things from her ...

thank you ladies! hehehe...mga 80 percent ma lang si abe sa poem. i mean he could recite the whole poem, pero syempre there are words that he can get right, tapos may words nga malaktawan ya pa. hehehehe i guess i will have to put in his own version after that poem i posted. it's really amusing the way he says it.
