Nuno Sa Punso
Nuno sa Punso
Would you like a cup of tea, with me
Here under a shade of mango trees
Within the comfort zone of a wooden fence?
Would you like a taste of bread, I made?
It's bibingka pie I baked today
Wrapped in banana leaves from a plantation, there;
Over the hedge and far beyond
stretch my masters' farm where I belong
Combed by the passing wind of love
I guard this land.
Nuno sa Punso, it is said that they show themselves to kids. It was also said that they were turned into fierce dieties to make Filipinos hate their own gods and to put an end to polytheistic belief.
So I'm wondering, perhaps in the pre-Spanish Colonialism, Nunos were friendly, kind dwarves who guards the farms and sometimes would allow kids to spend some time with them for a cup of good old ginger tea. :3
