Alternate Author Name(s): Stesichoros

BUT now the Sun, great Hyperion's child,
Embark'd again upon his golden chalice,
And westward steer'd, where far o'er ocean wild
Sleeps the dim night in solitary valleys;
Where dwell his mother, and his consort mild,
And infant sons in his sequestered palace;
Whilst onward through the laurel-shaded grove
Mov'd with firm steps the hero son of Jove.
