Sedna (Legenda Aurea)

In the silent deep water of the sea Tells a story of an endless tragedy Sedna, the goddess of marine creatures She mastered depths and gales Once upon a time when she was a young girl She was as beautiful as a flourishing rose But she rejected all proposals From contender, who wanted to marry her Her wrath coloured her soul Darker as her hair Victim of her conceitedness And of her pretension Now she must dwell forever At the bottom of the abyssal ocean Sedna’s father compelled her To marry a cryptic hunter, dressed in furs His face was hidden in shades Nobody knew his true identity Her wrath coloured her soul Darker as her hair Victim of her conceitedness And of her pretension Now she must dwell forever At the bottom of the abyssal ocean The hunter revealed himself a raven She cried into the wind Sedna’s father rescued his daughter But the raven attacked their boat For fear of death, the father threw Sedna off the boat She clung her hands on the boarder But he smashed her frozen hands Her fingers sank and transmuted to seals and whales Her will to live waned and she drifted to the ground That's how she became the goddess of seas Her wrath coloured her soul Darker as her hair Victim of her conceitedness And of her pretension Now she must dwell forever At the bottom of the abyssal ocean
