Chorus
Recently the message has flashed forth from snowy Parnassus [475] ordering all to search for the unknown man. He wanders under cover of the wild wood, among caves and rocks, fierce as a bull, wretched and forlorn on his joyless path, still seeking to separate himself from the doom revealed at the central shrine of the earth. [480] But that doom lives forever, forever flits around him.
