Twice the Angel raised himself, only to fall over sideways again.

The nearest was cobalt blue, another was saffron yellow, then came crimson red, then indigo, apple green, sky blue, orange, peach, mauve, turquoise blue, lilac, moss green, ruby red, burnt umber, Indian yellow, vermillion, lapis lazuli, and so on from horizon to horizon. And between the hill, separating color from color, flowed streams of gold and silver sand.

— Michael Ende

In saffron-colored mantle from the tides
Of Oceans rose the Morning to bright light
TO gods and men.
