  4. When Narcissus died the pool of his pleasure changed from a cup of
  5. sweet waters into a cup of salt tears, and the Oreads came weeping
  6. through the woodland that they might sing to the pool and give it
  7. comfort.
  9. And when they saw that the pool had changed from a cup of sweet
  10. waters into a cup of salt tears, they loosened the green tresses of
  11. their hair and cried to the pool and said, 'We do not wonder that
  12. you should mourn in this manner for Narcissus, so beautiful was
  13. he.'
  15. 'But was Narcissus beautiful?' said the pool.
  17. 'Who should know that better than you?' answered the Oreads. 'Us
  18. did he ever pass by, but you he sought for, and would lie on your
  19. banks and look down at you, and in the mirror of your waters he
  20. would mirror his own beauty.'
  22. And the pool answered, 'But I loved Narcissus because, as he lay on
  23. my banks and looked down at me, in the mirror of his eyes I saw
  24. ever my own beauty mirrored.'
