CHAPTER XXVII - Here!

Already she could see the yellow and reddish, tower-like upper story of Jamiltepec, and the rich, deep fall of magenta bougainvillea, from the high wall, with the pale spraying of plumbago flowers, and many loose creamy-coloured roses.
'Estan tocando!' said her boatman quietly, looking up at her with dark, pregnant eyes.
He had heard already the sound of the light drum at Jamiltepec. The boat rowed softly: and there came a sound of a man's voice singing in the morning.
Her boatman lifted an oar, as a signal to the house. And as the boat rounded the curve into the basin, a man-servant in white clothes came running down to the little jetty. In the changeless sunshine was a scent, perhaps of datura and of roses, and an eternal Mexican silence, which the noise of the drum, and the voice of singing, did not disturb.
`Is Don Cipriano here?' asked Kate.
`Esta!' murmured the man, with a slight motion towards Ramon's balcony, whence the singing came. `Shall I say you have come?'
He did not lift his voice above the murmur.
`No!' said Kate. `I shall sit here in the garden a while, before I come up.'
`Then I will leave open the door,' said the man, `and you can come up when you will.'
Kate sat on a scat under a big tree. A creeping plant, with great snake-like cords, and big sulphur-and-brown trumpet flowers, hung above. She listened to the singing. It was Ramon teaching one of the singers.
Ramon had not a very good voice. He sang quietly, as if to the inner air, with very beautiful, simple expression. But Kate could not catch the words.
'Ya?' said Ramon, when he had finished.
'Ya, Patrdn!' said the man, the singer.
And he began, in his strong, pure voice that caught at the very bowels, to sing another of the Hymns.

'My way is not thy way, and thine is not mine.
But come, before we part
Let us separately go to the Morning Star.
And meet there.
