Farewell, O Sun, ever-returning light,
The hidden God, who ever yet remains,
Who now departs to the land of Youth
Through the Gates of Death to dwell enthroned.
The Judge of Gods and man.
The Horned Leader of the hosts of Air-
Yet, even as he stands unseen about the circle,
So dwelleth he within the secret seed.
The seed of newly ripened grain the seed of flesh;
Hidden in earth, the marvellous seed of the stars. In him is Life, and life is the Light of man,
That which was never born and never dies.
Therefore the wise weep not–but rejoice!
