To the Sun

Standard

Greeting to you, Sun of the Seasons,
As you travel the skies on high,
Strong your steps on the wing of the heights,
Glorious Mother of the Stars.

You sink down into the perilous ocean
Free from fear and harm;
You rise up on the gentle wave
Like a young queen in flower.

–from the Carmina Gadelica, translated by Mara Freeman
