153. Below is the poem written by Edgar Lee Masters in 1915:

What Happened to Tom Merritt?

At first I suspected something

She acted so calm and absent-minded.
And one day I heard the back door shut,
As I entered the front, and I saw him slink
Back of the smoke house into the lot,
And across the field.
And I meant to kill him on sight.
But that day, walking near Fourth Bridge,
Without a stick or a stone at hand,
All of a sudden I saw him standing,
Scared to death, holding his rabbits,
And all l could say was, Don't, Don't, Don't,
As he aimed and fired at my heart.

Isa sa mga salitang napag-aralan natin sa wikang Pilipino ay ang salitang NABANSOT.


Page 7

Kapang ang isang bagay daw ay dapat pang lumaki ngunit ito'y tumigil na sa paglaki, ang bagay na
ito raw ay NABANSOT. Marami raw uri ng pagkabansot ngunit ay pinakamalungkot na uri raw ay
ang pagkabansot ng isipan, ng puso at ng diwa.

Ang panahon ng kabataan ay panahon ng paglaki, ngunit ang ating paglaki ay kailangang paglaki, at
pag-unlad ng ating buong katauhan, hindi lamang ng ating sukat at timbang. Kung ga-poste man ang
ating taas at ga-pison man ang ating bigat ngunit kung ang pag-iisip naman nati'y ga-kulisap lamang
kay pangit na kabansutan. Kung tumangkad man tayong tangkad-kawayan at bumilog man tayong
bilog-tapayan, ngunit kung tayo nama'y tulad nibondyingay di mapagkatiwalaan-anong laking
kakulangan. Kung magkakatawan tayong katawangTarzanat mapatalas ang ating isipang sintalas ng
kay Rizal, ngunit kung ang ating kalooban nama'y itim na duwende ng kasamaan-anong kapinsalaan
para sa kinabukasan.
Kinabukasan, kabataan, tayo raw ang pag-asa ng Inang Bayan. Tayo raw ang maghahatid sa kanya
sa langit ng kasaganaan at karangalan o hihils sa kanya sa putik ng kahirapan at kahihiyan. Ang
panahon ng pagkilos ay ngayon, hindi bukas, hindi sa isang taon. Araw-araw ay tumutuwid tayong
palangit or bumabaluktod tayong paputik. Tamang-tama ang sabi ng ating mga ninunong kung ano
raw ang kinamihasnan ay siyang pagkakatandaan. Huwag nating akalaing makapagpapabaya tayo
ng ating pag-aaral ngayon at sa araw ng bukas ay bigla tayong magiging mga dalubhasang
magpapaunlad sa bayan. Huwag nating akalaing makapaglulublob tayo ngayon sa kalaswaaan at
kahalayan at sa mahiwagang araw ng bukas sigla tayong magiging ulirang mga magulang.

Kabataan, tunay na pag-ibig sa bayan, ang tunay na nasyonalismo, ay wala sa tamis ng pangarap
wala rin sa pagpag ng dila. Ang tunay na pag-ibig ay nasa pawis ng gawa.

Alin salita ang paulit-ulit na binabanggit ni Onofre Pagsanghan?

A. Nabansot
B. Bayan
C. Kabataan
D. Kung
