Not even Death may Conquer Love

The Thracian King’s daughter
Falls in love with son of Theseus
That a Journey back from Troy joins
But homesick, he returns to his love Athens
With an oath to return to Phyllis.

She waits at the tall altar
Tears and a broken heart
Sympathy may the gods give
Poor Phyllis stands alone
A tree of hope, but no Demophon in sight.

He returns to find this plain tree
Alone with no blossom or leaves to please
A tearful embrace for apology
And the tree blossoms so suddenly
The almond now stands proud and tall.

A tale to convince
Not even death may conquer love.
