A City Beaming With Beauty



A City Beaming with Beauty

Who will ever ignore
A city beaming with beauty?
Who would never recall
The locals that are friendly?

Who would never want to see
The dainty city near the sea?
Who would never want to feel
The calming wind’s serenity?

Legazpi, a city by the Pacific
Landscapes are panoramic
Ambience quite romantic
And delicacies fantastic…


So it might be nice to tour
The City of Fun and Adventure
And if you’re a foodie, savour
Its spicy culinary culture



For there, you will discover
The dishes that sting
The volcano that’s stunning
The rides so exciting

Found on the extreme east of the world
Across the wide expanse of an ocean
Very far from other places
But home to many good surprises

Legazpi, a city by the Pacific
A place comely in many ways
Legazpi, the city which beams with beauty
A place of elegance and grace...

  5. Sometimes we fail to appreciate the beauty of the things and places we see all the time. I'm hoping to spend time this summer with friends and explore further what the city offers. :)

  8. A city of myriad lights;
    From morning sunrise until midnight,
    Smiles of people, so bright
    Gifted by nature, such a majestic sight.

  15. One thing that I've always missed when I studied in Manila was my hometown, Legazpi City- its fresh air, the beautiful Mayon, and the people. I'm glad that I'm back in this wonderful city and be able to see its beauty everyday ❤

  20. It is no wonder why Legazpi City is known as one of the most competitive cities in the country. And I have proven this after my one year of stay here and it already served as my second home. I hope to discover more of its beauty in the future.

  25. 100 % ✔. Who would not? Been here in this city many times but still always excited to see the beauty of Mayon Volcano, get to know the culture and experience the warmth of its people ❤

  26. Visiting Legazpi almost everyday made me get used to the place. Sometimes, I even fail to appreciate its beauty and perceive it as ordinary because I see it all the time.

    Thank you, sir, for reminding me of the beauty in the ordinary.

  31. Well, would you look at that! Legazpi, with it's amazing features eventually created splendid poets. I'm lost for words!! Legazpi always brings a smile to my face just as when I get to see the majestic view of Mt. Mayon and even the lights we witness as we visit the boulevard. I'm proud to be an Albayano and I'm proud of this poet! Hoping for more interesting and alluring poems about Legaspi! ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  32. I totally agree with this poem, Sir. It typically sums up everything that a tourist may find and see when they visit Legazpi City. Also, all of the adjectives that were used in each line have greatly defined its noun. It also leaves me asking myself whether there is any other poem that can better describe Legazpi City than this poem, because I really do think that this poem is the best of the best :) - Sioco, Christian Joseph B.

  34. As someone who grew up in this city, it is a privilege to see this wonderful city to bloom from the scratch into what is now. A city where the beauty of Mayon stands enticingly behind the city lights, Legazpi is something that will be forever treasured in my heart.
