Jade necklace—Mouthful of maize.
Painted red—Face fades into face.
Red at the dawn that rises.
Red at the dusk that falls.
Come back! Rise!
The endless cycle,
Coming back like a flood.
Seen by the skeleton’s eyes.
Pass through water and blood.
The Ceiba tree at the cycle’s heart.
Paint the doorpost red—Bind the grain in sheaths.
Life comes to die—The dead, to life, springs.
The light of the world—dawn to dusk.
Cast out all night for us!
The cycle will soon end
Life will rise, never again to die.
After the conquering of the fatal tree
By water and blood, by the everlasting flood
Of mercy + The true key + The real tree of life.
