Chela Chis-chela, your hands on your breast
Are as cold as the snow on the high mountain crest,
the firemaker's bracelet you wore with such pride
I place on your arm as I weep by your side.
Chela Chis-chela, no more will I see
The red fagots flame, as you signaled to me,
Chela Chis-chela, like fagots turned brown
My life has turned dark, for its sun has gone down.
Chela Chis-chela, they take you away
But the fire that you kindled will burn night and day,
When evening, and darkness, and shadows are here
A flame like the firemaker's light will appear.
Chela Chis-chela when gone to your rest
I will watch the bright rays flaming out from the west
And the sunlight, the moonlight, and starlight will be
Your smile, and your signal and welcome to me.
