Sunset over Zacatecas, México.
A wedding at Ex-Convento de Guadalupe, Guadalupe, Zacatecas, México
Does she know, the happy bride,
That sorrow comes her way?
Does she know her firstborn son
Will sometimes go astray?
Nestled safe within her womb
The child begins to grow;
But of pangs that are to come
How little does she know!

Wixáritari woman on Cerro de la Bufa, Zacatecas, México
Where, O where, has my little boy gone?
Where, O where, can he be?
I’ve looked for him high, I’ve looked for him low,
I’ve looked for him up in a tree!
The moment I find him, what should I do?
(I fear the search will be long.)
The thing every other mother would do:
Love him and sing him a song.

After seven frosts,
a smile transcending seasons
warms the coldest heart.
