Orpheus stood and played and sang before this entrance, shrouded in the dark cloud of grief.”      "Zeus claimed the heavens and the earth for himself, establishing his throne on Mount Olympus. The mountain is usually covered in clouds.”      They promise that he will be able to understand the language of the animals, to lie on the clouds. But this does not lure him out.” 88 Michael Köhlmeier, Sagen des klassischen Altertums (Munich: Piper, 1996), 17, 77, 20 (accessed on September 8, 2021). Translated here by Sylee Gore.
