Unknown Guaraní poet

According to Alfredo López Austin, writing in La Literatura de los Guaraníes (1965), this text is “an example of the guaú eté, unintelligible songs, even for those who sing them. The Chiripás say that this is authentic Guaraní, inferior in purity only to the songs the spiritual leaders receive from divinity itself.”
