English translation:To this old tree the Quetzaltecan poet Osmundo Arriola sang: "Towards the end of the street that leads to a church and its pious enclosure which collects the dead, there is a strong watchtower of high stature, courageous, solemn and of covered wounds, like the rude soldier of glorious epics that brandished his sword but eventually became sad and old."
