All are welcome to the last / Of this ancient faded story; / Here the present keeps the past, / Here the Casa holds its glory, / Where the passing of New Spain / Left its romance for tomorrow; / All who lived here yet remain, / Bits of laughter and of sorrow. / Once the ox-cart, loaded high, / Came with riches from the vineyard, / Where the sea-winds softly lie, / With the old Pueblo windward. / Now no Californio / Watches herd down this barranca. / Yet time does not seem to go; / And the old walls, painted blanca, / Whisper, whisper, a cappella, / Of Adobe Centinela! Written by Gordon W. Norris, California Poet Laureate."
