"In frondem crines, in ramos bracchia crescunt,
pes modo tam velox pigris radicibus haeret,
ora cacumen habet: remanet nitor unus in illa."

"Her hair turned into leaves, her arms into branches,
her feet so swift a moment ago stuck fast in slow-growing roots,
her face was lost in the canopy: only her shining beauty was left."


P. Ovidius Naso, Metamorphoseon libri XV
