”The Sun & Moon, an Eclipse Love Story” from a Latvian folk song:
Sun and Moon ~
In unison, we traversed the sky,
There was no day; there was no night
We basked in each other’s loving light
To tears we laughed; of joy, we cried
In bliss, we welcomed our first dear child
our heavenly bodies beaming with pride.
From then on three of us would by fate be tied.
Us and our daughter, the Earth, our hearts’ delight.
When there was no difference between dark and light,
We often crossed paths with the Morning Star.
Evening Star some call her, and she, dressed in white,
Floats with graceful charm, a maiden of the Sky!
Like a star, always center stage she takes
She looks like a swan in the heavenly lake
Ah, get on with our story, or my heart will break.
It pains me to remember how this affected the Earth.
Indeed, the Star seduced me with her graceful charm
Or I attracted her by hovering around?
I saw no other light, heard no different sound,
I felt the Star, and I forever was bound.
And when Perkunas, God of Thunder and of our realm.
Learned of this transgression, learned of your affair,
He punished us both; as if we both would err.
Earth by day I could watch, and you when the night fell.
Sun and Moon ~
Eclipses are the only brief moments of bliss
When we enchant each other and even steal a kiss,
When we watch the Earth through the veil of mist
Then clouds part; apart, slaves of our myth, we drift
