    entered the big metropolis

    The goddess Jaguar wants to see
    with the eyes of Tauarí
    The eyes of the goddess come and go
    from the earth to the sea
    from the sea to the earth
    the goddess wants to see
    with the eyes of Tauarí
    with the eyes of Tauarí

    CXLI

    the rhythm of the drum, l’abre-alas
    multitude of trees
    faces-branches confused
    with the sound of the rivers
    of the water-falls:
    city big
    streets lit
