Fruit-vender church,
seated at a corner of life :
crystal oranges of windows.
Organ of sugarcane stalks.

Angels: chicks
of Mother Mary,

The little blue-eyed bell
runs out barefoot
to scamper over the countryside.

Clock of the Sun;
angelical donkey with its innocent sex;
handsome Sunday wind
bringing news from the hill ; \
Indian women with their vegetable-loads
bound to their foreheads.

The sky rolls up its eyes
when the little barefoot bell
comes scampering out of the church.


Jorge Carrera Andrade
Translation by Muna Lee de Muñoz María
