Pre-Hispanic Poem 
           About Life and Death


 

Vida Única

¡Alégrate en extremo, oh rey Tecayehuatzin,

valuador de joyas florecientes!

¿Acaso una vez más vendremos a vivir?

Tu corazón lo sabe así:

¡Sólo una vez venimos a la vida!

Xayacamachan 1510 A.D.

 

Unique Life

Be as happy as you can, oh king Tecayehyatzin

You who appreciates the jewels that flourish!

Will we live again?

Your heart knows this:

We only live once!

Xayacamachan 1510 A.D.
