The tanaga is a type of short Filipino poem, consisting four lines with nine syllables each with the same rhyme at the end of each line.


A poetic form similar to the ambahan is the tanaga. Unlike the ambahan whose length is indefinite, the tanaga is a compact seven-syllable quatrain. Poets test their skills at rhyme, meter and metaphor through the tanaga because not only is it rhymed and measured but also exacts skillful use of words to create a puzzle that demands some kind of an answer.
