withered the flower of war.
Your word, Cuauhtémoc,
your flower, nose ring, golden symbol,
ablaze with the light of dawns
Your cotton flower
shines with the brightness of a quetzal,
You fill the Hummingbird Mountain with wonder;
Go forward!
For you, oh lord, the foundations,
for you will remain our city?
You will burn with anger, it is said:
another will be your reward.
Your golden attire of skins,
your cotton flower
shines with the brightness of a quetzal.
