Clytie, the Heliotrope
Adapted from Ovid


     And her limbs became rooted to the ground. Green leaves enfolded

her body. Her beautiful face was concealed by tiny flowers, 

violet-colored and sweet with perfume. Thus was she changed into a 

flower and her roots held her fast to the ground; but ever she turned 

her blossom-covered face toward the sun, following with eager gaze 

his daily flight.  In vain were her sorrow and tears, for Apollo 

regarded her not.
