na sa talino'y hubad
yakagin mang masikap
...yaring diwa'y lagalag.

Resurrecting The Tanaga
The Tanaga is a type of short Filipino poem, consisting of four lines with seven syllables each with the same rhyme at the end of each line - that is to say a 7777 syllable form, with an AAAA rhyme pattern. It's almost a dying art!
The Modern Tanaga
Its modern counterpart, The Modern Tanaga, still uses the 7777 syllable count, but rhymes range from dual rhyme forms: AABB, ABAB, ABBA; to freestyle forms such as AAAB, BAAA, or ABCD. Tanagas do not have titles traditionally because the Tanaga should speak for itself. However, moderns can opt to give them titles.
