CHAPTER XXII - The Living Huitzilopochtli

'Surely! And when you are a little older, perhaps you will come to me and say it too.'
`Never ! Thou hast killed our mother, and we shall hate thee. When we are men we ought to kill thee.'
`Nay, that is bombast, child! Why wilt thou listen only to servants and priests and people of that sort? Are they not thy inferiors, since thou art my son, and thy mother's son? Why dost thou take the talk of servants and inferiors into thy mouth? Hast thou no room for the speech of brave men? Thou wilt not kill me, neither will thy brother. For I would not allow you, even if you wished it. And you do not wish it. Talk no more of this empty lackey-talk to me, Cyprian, for I will not hear it. Art thou already a little lackey, or a priest? Come, thou art vulgar. Thou art a little vulgarian. We had better speak English; or thy French. Castilian is too good a language to turn into this currish talk.'
Ramon rose and went to the window to look out at the lake, The drums on the church were sounding for midday, when every man should glance at the sun, and stand silent with a little prayer.

`The sun has climbed the hill, the day is on the downward slope.
Between the morning and the afternoon, stand I here with my soul, and lift it up.
nly soul is heavy with sunshine, and steeped with strength.
The sunbeams have filled me like a honeycomb,
It is the moment of fulness,
And the top of the morning.'

Ramon turned and repeated the Mid-day verse to his boys. They listened in confused silence.
`Come!' he said. `Why are you confused? If I talked to you about your new boots, or ten _Pesos, you would not be confused. But if I speak of the sun and your own souls filled from the sun like honeycombs, you sulk. You had better go back to your school in America, to learn to be business men. You had better say to everybody: Oh, no! we have no father! Our mother died, but we never had a father. We are children of an immaculate conception, so we should make excellent business men.'
`I shall be a priest,' said Cyprian.
`And I a doctor,' said Pedro.
