The Treasure of Catalina Huanca (In English and Spanish)

Note: written after seeing the little adobe 16th century church San Sebastian, in San Jeronimo, by the mountains of Huancayo, Peru, after being taken there by the Wandering Quechua guide, Enrique (4-13-2005).

The Treasure of Catalina Huanca

Written by Dennis L. Siluk

There, by the lofty mountains fair

Hidden under the earth by Huancayo In San Jerónimo de Tunan-

Is Catalina's treasure of gold!

Whereupon, the Spaniards killed

Atahualpa, the Inca King--; Hence, Catalina turned around to seek

And found-her new, sacred ground!...

And, a glutted stream swept-

This little adobe church Called San Sebastian-ever since

In the lofty mountains by Huancayo!...

Spanish Version Por Dennis L. Siluk

Translated by: Rosa and Minerva Peñaloza

Note: Escrito después de visitar la pequeña iglesia San Sebastián construida de adobe en el siglo 16, en San Jerónimo de Tunan, por las montañas de Huancayo, Perú, después que ser tomado allí por el Peregrino Quechua guía, Enrique (4-13-2005)

El Tesoro de Catalina Huanca

Allí, por las altas montañas

Ocultado bajo la tierra de Huancayo En San Jerónimo de Tunan-

¡Esta el tesoro de oro de Catalina!

Por el cual, los españoles mataron

Atahualpa, el Inca Rey-; De ahí, Catalina giró para buscar

¡Y encontró - su nueva tierra sagrada!...

Y, una corriente saturada barrió-

Esta pequeña iglesia de adobe Llamada San Sebastián - desde entonces

¡En las altas montañas de Huancayo!...
