Do you recollect the dream I told you the night on the chinampa?
Viewed from a distance, the chinampa looked like an island of flowers.
In the quiet and perfumed shade of the chinampa he rested, and soothed the fever of his wound.
The keeper of the chinampa was there with great bundles of flowers.
Up in the northeastern part of the little sea lay a chinampa at anchor.
Besides that, he killed or wounded near a score of chinampa owners, and set their canoes adrift.
Every chinampa forms an oblong square about three hundred feet in length, and eighteen or nineteen feet broad.
The chinampa, at its anchorage, swung lightly, like an Indian cradle pendulous in the air.
The light of the great torch, kindled by the keeper of the chinampa, revealed her perfectly.
A chinampa was a floating island in the lake of Tezcuco, upon whose very bosom the imperial city was built.
