Excerpt from The Wonder-Book of Horses The old charioteer always slept soundly in the morning, and seldom awoke until he heard his young sister, the maiden whom men call Aurora, rapping at the door of his bedroom, and making her voice echo through the halls of the Dawn. Up, up, brother Helios! She would cry. It is time for you to begin your journey again. Up, and delight the world once more with your shin ing morning face and your life-giving presence! Then Helios would hasten to the meadows where his steeds were feeding, and would call them each by name: Come hither, beautiful creatures! Hasten, for Aurora calleth. E65, thou glowing one!
