21 There’ a crimson mist of roseate swans there beyond in your home, Santa Maria.
23 Turquoise swans, all the birds, are cackling. And this is how you’re prayed to, Santa María.
25 Ah, it’s San Gabriel who’s come down from where she is. She’s sent him down so that she, Santa María, can be prayed to. Ave María! O lady, noble lady, right here we’re praising you with love.
