Translated into English by Lawrence Schimel

She wanted to reach the golden line of the horizon

to make a bow from it. She charged all her suitors

to bring it back for her, but out of all of them, only one

returned. He brought her the horizon, but he warned the princess

that if she used it to adorn herself with, she would become

as unreachable and lonely as the horizon itself. But she,

accustomed to being surrounded by servants and suitors,

had never felt alone, and thought loneliness wouldn't be much of anything.

Thus she looked at him, mockingly, and put it on. Then she indicated

that he should approach, in order to give her appreciation for the gift

with a kiss, but he could no longer see her.
