“All moons, all year, all day, all winds walk and pass you by. Also, all blood arrives at its place of quiet…” (Fragment of “Chilam Balam”)
Chilam Balam from Tizimín:
Eat, eat so you’ll have bread;
drink, drink so you’ll have water.
That day, dust will cover the Earth;
that day, a plague will take over the surface of the Earth;
that day, a cloud will rise up;
that day, a strong, powerful man will take power of the Earth;
that day, houses will fall in ruins;
that day, tender foliage will be destroyed;
that day, there will be three signs in the tree;
that day, three generations will hang from it;
that day, we will raise the battle standard
and (the men) will disperse in the forest.
