Whose sweet leaves,
This green hair--
Where has she gone?
I saw her on that riverbank,
--there never was a sweeter chase--
I heard her call out her father's name.
That devil, that river-god, that tyrant,
Peneius who loves not love--
Whose magicks these are which have
Torn my Daphnis away?
No woman born should dare so much,
Cassandra I punished,
Calliope I loved,
Coronis bore my son.
But this jewel, this prize--
How did I lose her?
I might well wear willow-weeds
But instead I gather emerald fronds,
Almost-what if-might have been--
And weave them for my brow
Her silk, entwined,
Not golden wreath for a locket's heart,
But verdant chaplet for my diadem:
Such a hollow victory crown.
