“Drei Sonnen sah ich am Himmel stehn”, Wilhelm Müller from Winterreise

Three Suns I saw in the sky…”

I had the good fortune to look up and capture this beautiful Parhelia while walking through a park on Sunday afternoon.  I’m not certain if it was a true Sundog, but was grateful for the moment.

 

23.  The Mock Suns (Die Nebensonnen)

I saw three suns in the bright cold sky
I stared at them long and hard
Unmoving they stared back at me
As if they would last forever

You three do not belong to me
Go and shine on others
I used to have three suns
But the best two have gone

If the third goes out
I will welcome the darkness
