Nahuatl Song

1250-1500 CEMexico City

Where it gleams forth in fourfold rays, where the fragrant yellow flowers bud, there live the Mexicans, the youths. within the broad fields, and only for our sakes does the turquoise-water fall in broken drops on the surface of the lake. and songs of the fertile fields, they cause us to see those things which God has created and endowed with life.
