Jove heard her vows, and with a flatt'ring look, In her behalf to jealous Juno spoke, He cast his arms about her neck, and said, Dame, rest secure; no more thy nuptial bed This nymph shall violate; by Styx I swear, And every oath that binds the Thunderer. Let now your flittering wings deliver you, or even Jupiterdissolved in showers of imitation gold. The universal flood, and the regeneration of the human race from Deucalion and Pyrrha, the sole survivors, mark the passage from primordial events to those of mythology. He praises her wrists and hands and fingers, and her arms bare to the shoulder: whatever is hidden, he imagines more beautiful. About his lips the gather'd foam he churns, And, breathing slaughters, still with rage he burns, But on the bleating flock his fury turns. In longer time the tops of trees appear, Which mud on their dishonour'd branches bear.

Now I must destroy the human race, wherever Nereus sounds, throughout the world. He clasped the branches as if they were parts of human arms, and kissed the wood. Then the all-powerful father of the gods hurled his bolt of lightning, fractured Olympus and threw Mount Pelion down from Ossa below. To whom the God, Because thou canst not be My mistress, I espouse thee for my tree: Be thou the prize of honour, and renown; The deathless poet, and the poem, crown.

And now harmful iron appeared, and gold more harmful than iron. Immediately she blazed with anger, and did not hold back from its consequences. In the artificial night, he ravished Io. When Jove descended to possess her, she ran into the forest.

Then Fame declared that conquered by the song of Orpheus, for the first and only time the hard cheeks of the fierce Eumenides were wet with tears: nor could the royal queen, nor he who rules the lower world deny the prayer of Orpheus; so they called to them Eurydice, who still was held among the new-arriving shades, and she obeyed the call by walking to them with slow steps, yet halting from her wound.

When they had sprinkled their heads and clothing with its watery libations, they traced their steps to the temple of the sacred goddess, whose pediments were green with disfiguring moss, her altars without fire.

Immediately every kind of wickedness erupted into this age of baser natures: truth, shame and honour vanished; in their place were fraud, deceit, and trickery, violence and pernicious desires. This phenomenon is merely one aspect of Ovid's extensive use of illusion and disguise.
