Clusters of flowers

Close to the stalk

From a story of lovers

A story of loss

The petals and spikes

Springing up form

The blood of a youth

Killed without spite

A blow to the mouth

The tears of Apollo

Stain the petals

Beautiful son of Clio

His death a result

Of a wrestle

With the west wind (Zephyrus)

Apollo couldhave no consult

He kept Hyacinth in mind

Throughout his immortal years
