"Flower Song," Songs of Dzitbalche; transcribed by Ah Bam; trans. Munro Edmundson; lineation by Luis Enrique Sam Colop

We are here then in the heart of the forest
            at the edge of the stone pool
To await the appearance of the beautiful
            smoking star over the forest.
Shed your clothes!
Remove your hair stays!
Till you are as you arrived here
            on this earth,
O virgins,
Maidens of the changing moon . . .
