Maria in Paradise
Don't even ask. We have her and we are not giving her back!

Sending an "Adios Muchachos" to All Who Would Recall Her from Paradise!
Returning Always to Her Important Work
And Greeted Even the Volcanos with Great Joy
But She Found Even Greater Natural Beauty, Even In a Lava Flow
And to Inspect Their Crafts
Maria Took Time to Sample the Work of Local Artists
And Parents Raised Their Children High to See Her
While Families Sang Her Praises
And Were Drawn to Her
Children Were Inspired by her Example
But Maria Fought On!
Others Took an Easier Path
And Set Out for Battle!
And a Light Heart
She Mounted Her Stead with a Serious Purpose
But Even as the Dawn Began to Break
Even the Neighbors Took Note of Her Arrival
While Others Looked on With Dread
She Inspected Her Domain
And Flags Waved in the Breeze
There Were Rainbows When She Arrived
