Flower, Song, Dance: Aztec and Mayan Poetry by David BowlesIn pre-Colombian Mexico, song and dance were vital components of daily life. However, all that is left of this vast tradition of lyrical verse are fewer than 200 poems, most contained in three codices written just after the Spanish conquest. In this new translation, David Bowles employs the tools of English verse to craft accessible, powerful versions of selected songs from the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, striking a balance between the features of the original performance and the expectations of modern readers of poetry. With full-color illustrations, a thorough glossary and insightful introduction, Flower, Song, Dance brings a neglected literary tradition to life for the 21st-century.

Flower-and-Song is a difrasismo , a common form of expression in the Nahuatl language that uses two words to form a metaphor for a third, more expansive, concept. It is often translated as "poetry" but its meaning is more comprehensive than that, indicating that its practitioners strive to live a "poetic life.

When you walk in the forest, let it be. There's a flower in the wood, let it be. There's a flower in the wood, and it's innocent and good, By the stone where it stands.

We were looking for Chinese restaurant in Kandy and this was a good option. Very reasonable price. Food was tasty. Ambience was also okay. Ignore the entrance, take the lift up to the restaurant and you will find a hidden gem. The food here is fantastic especially the cuttlefish and deviled pork.
