Jose Guadalupe Posada


Suppose we were chaff, that was lying about
When a very small whirlwind brushed us to the sky,
And then at the moment when we sailed highest,
A wind that was stronger blew us apart…

posada

Goodbye little brothers,
Dear parents, farewell
Here my sins end,
I have no more to tell.
