A király a vezérét hívta: «Hatalmas,
Magas is vagy, a bõsz elefánt se különb,
Ám még magasabb ama fõknek a halma,
Amely általad épül a trónom elõtt.

S amiként a te híred, az én kegyem épp oly
Végnélküli, ó, te vitéz katonám.
Tengerre s a Napra te vagy csak a méltó.
Menj hát! Szolgád aranyarcu atyám!»

A dobok dübörögtek, a nép felüvöltött,
Térdelve köszönti urát a tömeg,
Lányok dala szállt, harsogtak a kürtök,
Visszhangzik a part meg a messzi vizek.

Meghajtva fejét, ugrott le a szirtrõl
A vezér, s befogadták õt a habok,
S úgy tûnt, nem a tenger ölébe merült õ,
A nap alkonyi óaranyába bukott.

A dob süketíti, rivallva a népe;
Már megvakitotta sósizü hab;
Eltûnt. S ragyogott a király sima képe,
Feketéllve, akárha pokolbeli nap.
