Saulės kelionė

According to the ancient Latvian worldview, at daytime, the Sun travels between two worlds. During the day, the Sun travels in a carriage of horses above the clouds. In the evening the Sun, Female Goddess in the Baltic worldview, moves to a golden boat and travels to another world where she nurtures orphans. A folk song conveys:

“The Journey of Sun”

Late at night the dear sun
Sits in a golden boat,
She rises in the morning
Leaving the boat to sway
