“Ubas Mo Dira, Higala”: A Hugot Poem by Dolly Say

Ubas mo dira, higala!

Pupo-on unya dugmukon
Ubas diay na, mga higala
Apan pwede pog ikaw amega
Nagpuyo raman unta kas kilid
Apan ngano pang gipunit
Gidugmok pagyud bisan hunit

Way kalooy, gipugos ko nimog puga
Aron saakong katam-is ikaw magmaya
Human gipuga, gepasagdaan
Ubas diay na, mga higala
Pero pwde pog ikaw amega

Magkadugay magkalami
Sama unta sa ubas ang atong relasyon
Dili sama niini nga wa gyud nagka-uyon
Permero ra ka nagpalami
Nagkadugay nagka-wa hinoon kay lami

Mura kag ubas, pataka lag katay
Perte ka paspas wa gyuy butay
Kamang ka didto, kamang pod ka dire?
Di man unta ka sama ka lami sa ubas
Pero nganong grabe kayka ka hilas?

Wa man unta ko ge-luas
Pero nganong sa matag kaon nakog ubas
Akong kasing-kasing mura mag gihimas-himas
Ang gugma sama sa usa ka ubas
Usahay moawas kasagara muhubas
