    The souls are dancing, overcome with ecstasy.
    I'll whisper in your ear ... where their dance is taking them.
    All the atoms in the air and in the desert know well, they are in a frenzy.
    Every single atom, happy or miserable... becomes
    enamoured of the Sun.
    Of which nothing can be said (...)
