The twins were born under the wings of the Swan, Zeus.
Castor inherited tenderness from their mother.
Pollux inherited immortality from their father.
When Castor was wounded to die in a war,
Pollux cried to Zeus, the Almighty,
" Take away my immortality and let us die together."
Thus, the twin stars have been twinkling side by side
in the eternal sky.


白鳥の翼のもとで 双子が生まれた
カストルは母のやさしさ ポルックスは父の不死身を受けついで
カストルが命を落とす日 ポルックスは神に願った
”自分の不死身を解いて 一緒に死なせてください”
