Now that we have asked for God’s grace and guidance, let us go on with our poem reading party. Nate: Literature has always been a part of Philippine culture since the pre-colonial times. Our ancestors expressed their feelings and reactions to their daily experiences through various literary forms. Poetry had been an important part of our literary development. Today, we will be presenting poems that express our feelings and experiences in relation to the family.
