SONG FOR A BOY

 

Since by natives is considered a girl weak

I cause to gods offerings great;

Ram for sacrifice slay

For a boy diligently pray.

 

Since a lad in a home prestige brings

Lass only considered for work, marriage or dowry good,

For ancestors I burn incense, chant, dance and sing:

When is born a boy in a new marriage under a gallant April full moon.
