Benjamin West, The Death of Hyacinth, 1771

"Moaned Apollo. `I can see in your sad wound my own guilt, and you are my cause of grief and self-reproach. My own hand gave you death unmerited—I only can be charged with your destruction.—What have I done wrong? Can it be called a fault to play with you? Should loving you be called a fault? And oh, that I might now give up my life for you! Or die with you! But since our destinies prevent us you shall always be with me, and you shall dwell upon my care-filled lips. The lyre struck by my hand, and my true songs will always celebrate you. A new flower you shall arise, with markings on your petals, close imitation of my constant moans: and there shall come another to be linked with this new flower, a valiant hero shall be known by the same marks upon its petals.’"
Ovid, Metamorphoses 10. 162 ff (trans. Brookes More)

Tam bir yıl önce, tam da bu saatlerde…beni ben yapan bütün duygular, hayallerim, umutlarım ve hayata bakış açım değişti. Aşk kavramı, benim için sonsuza dek değişti. Bir de acı…
