Tuesday Prayer

You are singing, little dove,
on the branches of the silk-cotton tree.
Andt there is also the cuckoo,
and many other little birds.
All are rejoincing,
the songbirds of our god, our Lord.
And our goddess
has her little birds,
the turtledover, the redbird,
the black and yellow songbirds, and the hummingbird.
These are the birds of the beautiful goddess, our Lady.
If there is such happiness
among the creatures,
why do our hearts not also rejoince?
At daybreak all is jubilant.
Let only joy, only songs,
enter our thoughts!
-Son of Dzitbalche
