The Ancient Battle
This one is a myth from Chiloe Island; a unique place in my country with its own culture and traditions. In fact, This myth isn't well known by others chileans o.o
I tried to make this a little epic, to give some atmosphere of epic poem. Perhaps, it would not be succeful at the end; but I hope you enjoy this little composition by myself ^^
There was an ancient time
when earth and sea were in peace
Human beings live without fear
because Ten-Ten Vilu,
the Powerful Great Snake
took care about them"
"Until Cai Cai Vilu,
the evil great Snake
wanted to end with each human beings,
calling for battle to death
-You aren't so powerful Ten-Ten Vilu -Said Cai Cai Vilu with wrath
-I protect humankind with my life, if it is necessary-
Ten-Ten replied watched by the sun."
Cai Cai Vilu Had arisen the seas
with her power
Ten Ten Vilu had arisen the earth and mountains
People escaped to these new lands
But that powerful battle made a lot of people to die
No way, battle like this haven't seen before.
The earth cries, and moves with enough potency
Exploding mountains with fire.. oh, please, no more
Breaks itself without mercy,
The Great Snakes are fighting too long."
At the End, Ten Ten Vilu had beaten Cai Cai Vilu, giving its own life as gift
The Earth never will be same,
The new great island was born
Chiloe will be its name
Ten Ten, with her last remaing power
Made a special tree
to remind people what had happen
Arrayan is that tree called, growing on places
where is a few earth but enough water
Remembering with its seed
how much people were saved.
The Epic and Ancient Battle
Between those Powerful Snakes.
