Sa pugad ng isang pag-big na wagas,
nilang kang inakay na buto at balat,
Ika'y inaruga't minahal nang ganap,
Isip mo'y nilinang, buto'y pinatagas,
Kaya't naging ibong matibay ang pakpak.
Nang maging ibon ka't ang pakpak na angkin
Ay nalilipad na ang ibig liparin,
Sa mga tagumpay lubos kang nalasing;
pugad na nilakha'y tinagkang gibain,
Ang nagpalang kamay, ibig nang tukain.
Sa ganyang gawa mo'y dapat matalastas
Na di naman laging iyo ang itaas:
Bagwis, pag nasira'y nabali sa lipad,
Ikaw at ang madlang papuri't pakpak,
Sa lupa'y pasubsob na magsisilagpak.
Sa pagkahiabng mo sa lakas ng angkin,
Nagbigay ng lakas, dinusta't iniring,
nilimot mong ganap ang salawikaing;
Sa pinanggalingan, ang hindi tumingin,
Sa paroroona'y di makakarating.
