Night Eagle was walking facing west and joined his thoughts with the Sun ritual death. In the evening the procession arrived to the Etla Valley and Night Eagle's mind repeated a poem learned in the home of young people:

"I am out of sense,
I weep, I worry and think,
I say and remember:
Oh, if I never died,
if I never disappeared
I should go where there is no death,
where victory is reached!
Oh, if I never died,
if I never disappeared
Hear a song from my heart:
I start to cry; I am filled with pain.
We go among the flowers:
we have to leave this land:
we are loaned to each other:
we shall go to the House of the Sun!
should I wear a varied flowers necklace:
be in my hands;
flourish in my garlands!
We must leave this land:
we are loaned to each other:
we go to the House of the Sun!"
