“She sat down upon one of these pearls.”
. . . great icebergs were floating about. These, she said, looked like pearls, although all were much larger than the church towers in the land of human beings. She sat down upon one of these pearls, and let the wind play with her long hair; but then all the ships set their sails in fear, and sailed away as quickly as they could.

Soon they will sup from a beautiful dish,
Modeled in clay, on tortillas and fish.
Then, when the stars are all lighted, perchance
Off they will run to the plaza to dance.
Songs in their hearts and sweet bells on their clothes;
Gay little Mexicans, give me a rose!
