Winged horse with a bridle of gold
Favorite of Zeus
Keeper of the Thunderbolt.
Splendid stallion that Bellerophon rode
Against the Chimaera
In a timeless tale, a legend of old.
Alas, the unfortunate rider was thrown.
He angered the gods
Trying to fly to the Olympians' home.
The magnificent horse was placed in the skies
Among the stars he flies.
Still in the halls of Olympus
On a magic night
Can be heard the hooves of Pegasus.
