CHAPTER XV - The Written Hymns of Quetzalcoatl

`Now all was very heavy upon me, like a tomb-stone of darkness.
`I said: Am I not old? How shall I roll this stone away?
`How art thou old, when I am new man? I will roll away the stone. Sit up!
`I sat up, and the stone went rolling, crashing down the gulfs of space.
`I said to myself: I am new man. I am younger than the young and older than the old. Lo! I am unfolded on the stem of time like a flower, I am at the midst of the flower of my manhood. Neither do I ache with desire, to tear, to burst the bud; neither do I yearn away like a seed that floats into heaven. The cup of my flowering is unfolded, in its middle the stars float balanced with array. My stem is in the air, my roots are in all the dark, the sun is no more than a cupful within me.
`Lo! I am neither young nor old, I am the flower unfolded, I am new.
`So I rose and stretched my limbs and looked around. The sun was below me in a daze of heat, like a hot humming-bird hovering at mid-day over the worlds. And his beak was long and very sharp, he was like a dragon.
`And a faint star was hesitating wearily, waiting to pass.
`I called aloud, saying: "Who is that?"

My name is Jesus,
I am Mary's son.
I am coming home.
My mother the Moon is dark.

Brother, QuetZalcoatl,
Hold back the wild hot sun.
Bind him with shadow while I pass.
Let me come home.

`I caught the sun and held him, and in my shade the faint star slipped past, going slowly into the dark reaches beyond the burning of the sun. Then on the slope of silence he sat down and took off his sandals, and I put them on.
" 'How do they wear the wings of love, Jesus, the Mexican people?"
" 'The souls of the Mexican people are heavy for the wings of love, they have swallowed the stone of despair."
" `Where is your Lady Mother in the mantle of blue, she with comfort in her lap?"
