Florante at Laura

Florante at Laura by Francisco Balagtas is required reading for the Filipino language and literature subject in second year high school. Being asked to stage it in class is very common, and was in fact one of the highlights of my sophomore year.

Salamat sa iyo, ó nánasang írog,
cong halagahán mo itóng aquing pagod,
ang tulâ ma,i, bucál nang bait na capós,
paquiquinaban~gan nang ibig tumaróc.
