Like the Tiger

Who is this,

like the tiger,

riding the wind

with his phantom-like body?

When the oaks see him,

when the people see him,

they speak with hushed voices,

saying one to another:

“Lo, brother, there is

the ghost of Caupolipan.”

Araucanian

Caupolipan: Mapuche military leader  of Chile 1553
