  MEXICAN SERENADE  

When the little armadillo
With his head upon his pillow
                Sweetly rests,
And the parrakeet and lindo
Flitting past my cabin window
                Seek their nests,--

When the mists of even settle
Over Popocatapetl,
                Dropping dew,--
Like the condor, over yonder,
Still I ponder, ever fonder,
                Dear, of You!

May no revolution shock you,
May the earthquake gently rock you
                To repose,
While the sentimental panthers
Sniff the pollen-laden anthers
                Of the rose!

While the pelican is pining,
While the moon is softly shining
                On the stream,
May the song that I am singing
Send a tender cadence winging
                Through your dream!

I have just one wish to utter--
That you twinkle through your shutter
                Like a star,
While, according to convention,
I shall cas-u-ally mention
                My guitar.

Senorita Maraquita,
Muy bonita, pobracita!--
                Hear me weep!--
But the night is growing wetter,
So I guess that you had better
                Go to sleep.

                     Arthur Guiterman.
