Hast thou left thy blue course in heaven, golden-haired son of the sky?
The west opened its gates; the bed of thy repose is there.
The waves come to behold thy beauty; they lift their trembling heads.
They see thee lovely in thy sleep; they shrink away with fear.
Rest in thy shadowy cave, O sun; let thy return be in joy.
